It would seem my jumping up and down has had some effect as they are now using Eclipse Android Bundle with PyDev. This seems to be a much better solution for what they need, and no faffing around with Beta software.
yeah we have eclipse installed for them but they are wanting to do App Inventor. the Gpo edits of course just worked for me. (thanks) now im not quite sure how to deal with this lol
So what hoops do I need to jump through to make this run ? I have some heavy restrictions on student users
Software restriction policies :-
blocked access to cmd.exe and command.com
bat and exe blocked
Prevent access to command prompt
Prevent access to the registry
drive c: hidden and access prevented
I've tried disabling some of these and I still get a "App inventor suspects your setup software is out of date"
I'm certainly not comfortable opening up the computer to students.
Seems like it needs an elevated command prompt.
For now I've had to submit and create some time enabled staff accounts for the students to use (albeit with restricted internet and no mapped drives..)

I had this working last year on our CC4 network but there was always the odd random machine that did not work. This year I plan to setup an VM through https://www.virtualbox.org/ so they have an open machine in there but with no shared drives apart from their own one.
Anyone used this software in a Citrix/Remote Desktop environment?
Just got the email saying we *have* to use this software too
