General Discussion / Selling computer with EFL installed
« on: December 08, 2017, 05:41:14 pm »
I have no problem with you selling your computer with my software installed. Please remember if you give others access to the software that you have already activated it will cause you problems.
Why?
Because they might log in to it and use it. You will then have problems logging in if you have reinstalled it on another PC. So I suggest you uninstall the software following instructions in the uninstall topic of this forum. You can then reinstall the software but just don't login. This will give the new user of your PC the chance to register the software in there name.

Future Updates / Create a user details reset button (
« on: December 08, 2017, 01:43:40 am »
I have just created a reset button which you can use. This will email the user details to the email address on file. This will only work if you have logged in to the software at least once. If you have not then you will need to register.

I will be holding back on releasing this software update as I have other updates I want to bring out at the same time.

3
As things are now users are installing the software with admin rights and there is a 30 day trial before the software becomes unusable. I am in the process of modifying this so that the 30 day trial will no longer exist. I am also making it so the user can register the software, get a serial key automatically which will take the strain off me having to create accounts for everyone.

This will reduce the amount of time people have to wait for me to generate serials and usernames. I will then be able to dedicate more time to upgrading features of the software. I expect this update to come in to effect by the end of January.

This is a work in progress and I will roll this update out as soon as I can. It will help me correct the online user issue. The idea is people will be logged off the server when they have been idle for x amount of time. I am not giving a set date this will be completed yet as I am fairly busy working on other parts of the software.

Languages / Spanish language version
« on: December 01, 2017, 09:56:19 am »
At the time of writing this you can only get Education for Life in 2 languages.

1, English
2, Spanish

The English version will always be upgraded first, it can take 2 months for the Spanish version to get the same update as the English version.

6
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.

Future Updates / Server down time
« on: September 30, 2017, 07:34:14 pm »
Hi all,
server will be going down for maintenance at 1935 until 2100 hours on the 30th September 2017. 

9
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.

11
The next major update will allow people to challenge each other online. I have no fixed date at the time I write this this but hopefully it will be soon.

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.

13
The below should no longer apply as long as you have downloaded an up2date version. This software no longer needs to be installed with admin rights.

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.

Now download the attachment on this post called CleanCach1.rar
Once you have downloaded it extract it somewher on your PC.
You will see there is a file called CleanCache1.bat
Double click on this file and it will run--- after a few seconds it will close it's self
Now right click on that same file and click run as Administrator it will open and close it's self
Now reboot your PC
When you log back in run the same file again.
Your computer has now been fully cleaned.
