    Starspell 2.2

    Anyone got a working version of this they can perhaps supply me with? The disc I've got complains about all sorts of missing files when I try to run it.

    If not, I think the SEN department may need to upgrade.

    Just been thinking. We used to run this application from our CD server (which is no more) so perhaps that is why this was done, because it won't install to the local machine. If anyone has managed to do this please do let me know.

    Not at the school that uses this, but I'm pretty sure that I installed 2.2 locally at another location last week.

    Have set an alarm to remind me to check tomorrow.

    Yes it should work without the CD server, but the MSI I have from the disc complains about missing files. They're there on the disc, I can see them, but it's not having any of it.

    I tried installing it straight from the setup.exe/msi on the local machine.

    Hi - just had a look at the disc. IIRC it just installed without problems using the Setup (didn't try the MSI). Of course, it may well be that this "urgently needed" software has never been used since and doesn't work at all.

    I think this is a good time to give the department a nudge towards getting rid of the software, that's what we did

    If you really can't shake the stick from their mouth I think we have a copy gathering dust somewhere.

    LeMarchand has very kindly offered to help me out on this.

    Starspell is part of the brick work I think.
