    Edexcel enterprise examining software

    Has anyone else installed this/ have any experience of it? I've installed it but it errors every time I try and start the esm server.
    'error 18 when connecting to port 80'
    'make sure IIS is not running'

    I'm pretty sure IIS isn't installed so any ideas?

    Cheers

    I do get those errors sometimes but after a few attempts it usually starts
    In my case I think its possibly something to do with it already being started on another RDP session

    Do you use a proxy? if so have you told ESM server about it?

    Hi cheers for your fast replies, yes I've configured the proxy and entered a username & password for it supplied by the council team.

    Some days it'll start some days it won't

    When you start the browser does it open two windows? "one saying the webpage you are trying to view is trying to close the window"
    "Do you want to close this window"? ignore that
    the window underneath that box is the log on screen. Log in does it work then?

    Thankyou! I just started the browser even though the server wasn't running and it showed me exactly what was causing it. I'm running spice works.
    Brilliant, now I can continue setting the thing up!

    If you give Promissor Support a ring 0870 240 9819 option 1 they can confirm your details
    They are very helpful in my experience anyway.

    I must admit I didn't use to think this software was that bad, but from experience this past week I seem to be changing my mind!
