accessing things from school server with Studio Player

I am creating Studio projects on my teacher laptop with Studio. I save it and it opens. Then I save it to the public folder so that I can use it on the student computer which has the Studio player installed. We are unable to open BMStudio projects using BoardMaker Studio Player using the student log in on that computer. Some project files created prior to (Oct 5th when I used a flashdrive at a class) will open and play but the newer ones will not open. The error message reads “unable to open file \\linclon\public\ms......”. Another quirk is that when my school tech guy was here, we opened the player in my log in name instead of the kids name and I could get to my Studio files via the server. That's ok. But I didn't want to have the kids on my log in. Here's the quirk: Now a week later, I opened the player with kids log in. Because the file is in the recently opened projects, I could actually open and use it. I had the AEA assistive tech person and the district tech guy here and they helped by making sure we have the updates for Studio Player. The Studio Player software is the latest updated version and the computer is running Windows XP. Please contact me using my email. The three of us sent an email last week and got no reply. If I need to reinstall, I just need to know if the registration issues I struggled with in August and September will be less problematic and that you all can reset the registration or whatever. Thanks, Barb

  • Hi Barb,

    It sounds like this could be a permissions issue on the Student Accounts. The Student account would need to be given Read/Write permissions to the folder the the projects are saved in on the server. This could be causing the problem. Does the program work fine for them otherwise? Thanks and have a great day!

  • Sounds like an issue we have here in our district. I'm the Assistive
    Tech Technician and what I have found is that our IT staff allows student log on profiles different permissions than the teacher.
    So when you logged in with our credentials, that created the link needed for the student to be able to access the activity. After you logged in and opened the activity it is now saved within the Player software, hence it would be there when student or anyone else logs in.
