Trouble with Planner and XMind

(2 posts)

    Hi All

    I have recently downloaded the apps and am very pleased with them. However, I am having trouble with the Planner, it would not save and did not appear to be working correctly. I was also having problems with XMind. I E-mailed RSC directly and below is the reply I received.

    Hi Nigel,

    Sorry, I'm away from the office at the moment and don't have access to a (reliable) Internet connection. I'll be back on Tuesday when I'll be able to take a closer look at this. Could you let me know which applications/packages you downloaded? Also, do you have Java installed on your machine?

    Xmind requires Java and I didn't include the runtime files in the download - so that might explain why it's not working. You can check out if Java is working properly here:

    Not so sure about Planner - I'll give that a go on Monday night and try and get back to you on Tuesday!

    Many thanks for the reply. I have checked Java and that is fine.

    In respect of the planner - I donwloaded it directly from the link on the site to my computer and it is working fine. However, I would like it to work from a pen drive.

    If anybody else is having any problems could they please let the site know.

  2. Sorry for the abysmally late reply!

    Given that you downloaded Planner and got it run on your PC, it sounds like the Planner (and perhaps Xmind) files were corrupted during the initial download – always possible with such large downloads.

    If you have a working copy of Planner, then you can manually install this onto your EduApps package:

    1. Download a portable version of the application you would like to add.
    2. Install/extract the downloaded file to the 'Applications' folder of your USB stick.
    3. Open the EduApps menu by clicking the EduApps icon in the systems tray.
    4. Click on a button labeled 'ASuite' (right hand side towards the top). You should see the menu structure of all the installed applications
    5. Right click on the folder you would like to add your application to and select 'Add software'
    6. In the 'Properties' dialog window which opens click on 'Browse'.
    7. Navigate to the folder of the application you are adding and double click on the file used to launch that application, usually *.exe.
    8. This should take you back to the Properties dialog. Click on 'Retrieve', which should populate the fields with the program information (if not fill in the fields as appropriate) then click OK.
