    I had the same thought when I realised I knew the HP Customer Services phone number by heart

    I finally got a reply from RM regarding Server 2008. Here it is as promised:

    Thank you for your recent email and apologise for the delay in responding.

    Unfortunately Windows Server 2008 isn't currently supported.

    For further details on the technical specification please follow the link below.

    KS3 ICT Website

    Please note the website is branded QCA as it is the QCA KS3 ICT Assessment Task software that we use to run our on-screen tests.


    There you have it for what it's worth.

    I don't understand why it shouldn't work on server 2008 - what is so different?

    Well I'm not surprised, considering it's still officially unsupported

    it's not the server end that's unsupported - the tests wouldn't download to the workstations even though they have been avalible scince monday - why do they not just scrap it already?

    Has anyone been sucessful with the ELBS GCSE's on the computer?

    How does that square with this quote from them?

    Unfortunately Windows Server 2008 isn't currently supported.
    Since the tests get pulled to the workstations from the server, not from the outside world, I'd expect nothing to work at all.

    I will be honest what you find is first year use the software you think it is nightmare and this is mainly due to getting you head around A how it works and B ironing some local issues which never going to see until you run the tests.

    This is something I did few years back for it when it KS3 tests.

    Lets Get Ready KS3 ICT SATS Test

    Most of it applies when running it as GCSE test.

    Just click HELP in the page where you run the session, it says what all the status commands mean. Also i did chuckle this morning during the exam when i was looking up what to do if a students pc crashed, the help even tells you what to do if you have a bomb scare or a gas leak

    Sorted now thanks - they hadn't finished the test properly.

    I'll have to read through that stuff on monday when I'm doing our final exam (hopefully)
