    Movie Maker - SoftXpand Help

    All

    We have purchased 15 or so SoftXpand PC's and I am in the process of upgrading them from version 2 to version 3. The problem I am experiencing is that I cannot get Movie Maker to run inside the SoftXpand environment. Apparently you have to download and install the following software > Sandboxie - Sandbox software for application isolation and secure Web browsing to "fool" XP into thinking only one instance of Movie Maker is running. Has anyone else had problems getting Movie Maker to work in SoftXpand? If so how did you resolve it? Can anyone recommend an alternative?

    Thanks

    Hi Firefox, what school are you from? I've found a KB article here that could help Using SoftXpand Xpress Application Runner to run applications I am aware that you will have to contact the author of Sandboxie in Israel to purchase Sandbox licenses if you go down that route. Try the link attached and if that doesn't work I'd go to the VAR you bought your SoftXpand from.

    Hello Multipoint

    I am from a school in Lichfield, Staffordshire. I have managed to source a work-around where the user holds down shift when clicking on the MovieMaker shortcut. We bought the system off a one man band outfit and struggle to get hold of him. cheers for your reply.

    Hey, did the fix in the link work? It would be interesting to know. Having spoken to a few people the moviemaker shortcut sounds ingenious!

    No it did not, infact I am finding more and more bugs and errors in this SoftXpand software, shame really as if we could just get it working properly it might prove useful.
