    It's a clean server with 2K8 installed and latest updates only then QCA thing on top

    UPDATE: I have carried out the same process on a 2K3 server and having the same problem - I am starting to dislike this thing!

    As a confirmation from RM/QCA tech Support - Server 2008 is UNSUPPORTED!

    Any timescale for server 2008 to be supported? It's not exactly brand new now is it.

    I would guess at when 2011 comes out... the guy on the phone didn't sound overly like he'd heard of server 2008 I don't think

    Hi Cookie Monster,

    I spoke to RM on friday about this, and I was told that because the QCA testing is no longer compulsory, RM are no longer doing development work on it and as a result it will never be compatible.

    Great news for me, as it means we can get rid of it in the summer :-)

    How can they not be developing it any more?!?! I've got ELBS tests coming up and surely I haven't done all this work for them to pack it in?!?!

    That's what they told me on friday, albeit after they'd passed me round about 3 different departments and I'd spoken to several people who potentially had never heard of Microsoft, let alone Server 2008.

    I've sent RM an e-mail asking for clarification, but I won't be holding my breathe!

    I can't see how they can not support 2008 in the future since their website talks about the new GCSE, City & Guilds and Functional tests which are coming in 2009/2010 and onwards. See AQA On-screen tests.

    If I get any sense out of RM I'll post it here.

    ooh... having great fun with this crud here... we've imported pupils the way it says to using Census file and it put the wrong first names with the last names - about 20hours til the GCSE requires this working and I'm nowhere again!!!

    Is it worrying that I now know the phone number for RM QCA helpdesk off the top of my head?!?
