Just to make everyone aware you can overwrite the English version of this software with the Spanish version. If you do this the software will need to be reactivated before it expires. You can still use the same login information you had before.

You can only do this depending on the version number of the software you have. You will need to have installed the latest English version which is 4.1.1.176 if you have an earlier version you can not install the Spanish version on top of it.  If you attempt to you can corrupt the files which means neither version will work until you have followed the uninstall instructions in this forum.

If you decide to install the Spanish version over the English version You will not be able to install the English version over the Spanish version until the English version has a higher package number than the Spanish version.
My example of this is let's say you have the Spanish version installed which is 4.1.1.177 and you decide you want the English version 4.1.1.176 you can not just overwrite the Spanish version because the Spanish version has a higher package number than the English number.

I will not be offering support to those people that want to interchange versions and move from one language to another. I suggest you do a complete uninstall and then reinstall if you want to swap languages. You can follow the uninstall instructions in this forum if you need assistance.

It is not possible to run both the English and Spanish versions of this software together. They have the same package name so you will need to choose the language you want before you install.

« on: August 21, 2017, 02:12:13 pm »
I will be releasing a spanish version of Education for Life soon. I expect it to be released at the end of September. I have started work on it today. Im sure you can imagine it is a long winded process.

If you get the error message The "'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine."
the fix is simple go to the link below
https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=13255
Click on the big red Download sign and you will be given 2 options one is for the 32 bit install and the second is for a 64 bit install. As my operating system is 64 bit and my PC is 64 bit I will put a check mark in the 64 bit box. I will then click the next button which will download the 64 bit installation file to my computer. Once you have installed that download restart your PC and all will work.

Activate Software / This is how you activate the software
« on: March 12, 2017, 08:12:02 am »
To activate the software click on the Activate button near the top left side of the software. You then need to close the software and reopen it. Then click on the activate button again and once again close the software and reopen it. Do this 3 times and the activate button will disappear. Your software is now activated, it has to be done this way to reduce fraudulent use of my software.

Software will need to be reactivated if a new update comes out. You are welcome to ignore the update and keep the old version. It just means you will be missing out on new features.

I have had some people say they get an error when installing this software. If you do get an error complaining about the registry key like in the image below. It is because you failed to install the software with Admin rights like you were asked.

Do you get an error like this?




This is not a major issue just a small hiccup which you can overcome. You will need to read my thread on uninstalling the software to get past this. Once you have uninstalled the software simply start over. This time remember to install the software with admin rights.

To uninstall this software it's simple go to your control panel. You will see the software listed there like the attached image. You just need to highlight it then click on the Uninstall/Change button.

You will then get a popup box asking you to choose the type of maintenance you need. There will be two choices,

Choice 1, Restore the application to it's previous state.
Choice 2, Remove the application from this computer.

Make sure you choose option 2 then click the button that says "OK"
Now if you look at the installed software list on your computer you will see "Education for Life" has been removed.

Sometimes when we uninstall software from our computer not every trace of the software gets removed. What I like to do is open a command prompt and type in "regedit" you then get a windows asking Do you want to allow the following program to make a changes to your computer. Click yes The registry will now open.


You will see a list of folders in front of you click on the arrow next to the one that says HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
When the window expands click on the folder that says Software. This will expand showing you a list of all software on your computer.
Now look closely the software we uninstalled earlier "Education for Life" still has a folder. I would delete that folder, so right click on it and left click  delete. I find it a nice feature run some optimisation software at this point. Then reboot the computer and all should be good.

Lost Serial keys / Lost serial keys
« on: February 20, 2017, 07:43:48 pm »
Ok, sometimes things do not go as planned and we somehow loose our serial key. This is not a problem so long as you can contact me using the same email address that you used to purchase the software.
Your old serial key will then be discarded and you will be provided with a new one.

Installing Education for Life / Installing Education for Life
« on: February 20, 2017, 07:36:31 pm »
Installing this software is fairly straight forward. The software has been packaged as a .rar archive so you will need to unpack it. You will see the download link at http://mathswhizz.org You will not find a legitimate copy of this software being offered anywhere else.
What I like to do is create a folder call it "Education for Life"  and once the software has downloaded put it in to that folder. Now open the folder and right click on the .rar package you have downloaded and click Extract Here.
Once the package has unpacked you will see several files in front of you. You need to right click on the one that says setup.exe and left click "Run as administrator" You will then see the User account control window open asking if you want to allow the following programme to make changes to your computer. Click on Yes, depending on your security setting you might get another window open asking if you want to run this software. Click Run,

You will now see a login window in front of you this means the software has been installed. It is very important you install the software like I said with Administrator rights or parts of the software will not work.
