We had moved to Mavis Beacon V15 and planned on using it in three
elementay schools.  The problem we had was that the program was
incompatable with Compaq EVO's running Win98SE.  All of the labs at
those schools have EVO's.  I have used earlier versions with no problem.
 The other odd thing about the import of users was that it could not be
done on a WIN98 machine.  Once we did it on a W2K machine, the import
went fine.

Hope this is helpful.

Hello,

Our tech guy has installed Mavis Beacon version 15 as a "networked"
typing
program. For whatever reason, in order to use it to track a student's
progress, we have to use a convuluted import/export process. Our tech
guy
says it's because that is the way the program is designed and it's not
truly
networkable despite what Mavis says. I'm skeptical of this explanation
and
wondering if it's because of Deep Freeze (don't get me started) or that
we
have it installed incorrectly. Does anyone out there have a typing
program
(either Mavis or something comparable) that is able to be used as a
networked version as in a student can sign in from any workstation and
have
the program access their prior work/progress without having to go
through an
11 step process to locate student work on the server and import it?

Thanks,
