It's a blooming pain. I just wish there was a definitive answer "No this won't work, yes this is fine" or "Here is the workaround". Why schools find it necessary to use 1995 applications is beyond me :P
I thought usability is lost with GUI interfaces as new architecture becomes readily available. I understand the argument "If it's not broke, why fix it" but surely as nearly 10 years has passed with some products, more resources become available to run on updated technology which would be in the best interest of Staff and Pupils 'In an ideal world'.

The only I problem I ran into was making sure users on a clean Windows 7 install had a registry key in place before installing the Smartboard Notebook 10.8 software. Other than that, everything I've run into has been a breeze with Win7x64.
