As previously stated - It is alright saying it'll work... that isn't proof for me.
As also previously stateed the reason for upgrading is because im having these issues. I'm not just seeing if it'll work on Windows 7, im sure it will. I'm not just seeing if it'll work on my network, i'm sure it will.
I want to see if it fixes my issues!
I don't think anyone here can help you (we are users just like you) - in any case the installation and licensing forum is over here
Friend, stop posting here and contact an Eduational Reseller for your testing needs: there is nothing you can do solo/on your own. Sorry if this is an attempt on your part to make up for a missed deadline, but this is not the way to do what you wish, wrong software and wrong methodology.
You lot definitely need to work on your friendly approach.
I posted here because I saw another post on this forum where somebody had been given a 30 day serial number to use for installation. This would meet my needs so I thought I would post also.
I'm not behind on a deadline or anything of the such. I am simply an IT manager wanting to make sure that some software works on my system before spending a lot of money on it.
I didn't think that this is a lot to ask.
It is probably worthwhile identifying _what_ is causing the issues before you talk to an educational VAR. I would suggest getting ProcessExplorer from Microsoft, and running that while getting your current installatin to fail. The logs and information generated should help pinpoint the root cause of the problems you are experiencing. It may turn out to be a conflict with some other software that's installed.
Just because you're an ' Expert Elite' doesn't mean that you are always right.
