I have attached two files that you can use (or modify to meet your setup)
that might help you in your desires to use Mavis15 standalone edition and
have it act like a network edition.
Basically, you install the program and then run the attached batch file.
(you might have to modify it to point to the location where you have
copied the other attached "mavis15.ini" file). The mavis15.ini file has
been modified to tell Mavis to look to the H drive (that is our student's
or classroom's home directory on the file server). The batch file copies
the mavis15.ini file to the proper location for the OS you are using.
Thus the end result is that a student can utilize any computer that has
been modified in the above manner and access their Mavis data.
