Normally a user would select 'Desktop computer'.

 

installr6

The Desktop computer install will install ReportPlus to your computer's 'Program Files' folder, you work will be stored in 'My Documents\ReportPlus\'.  You will be able to start the program by clicking the ReportPlus icon on your Desktop.

 

However, the Desktop computer install may not be suitable, so ReportPlus allows you to easily select other types of install...

 

Networked laptop or net-book:

 

This will install to your computers 'Program Files' folder but your work will be stored locally in 'C:\Override\'.   You will be able to start the program by clicking the 'ReportPlus' icon on your desktop.

 

We have created this special type of install because most laptops/net-books have file-sync issues when connecting to/being removed from a network (especially a wireless network).  As your work will be forced to be kept on your computers hard drive this will minimise any issues.  The side effect is that it should be a single user laptop, not a laptop shared between teachers.

 

Install to standard memory stick:

 

This will install to any type of removable memory stick or device.  Your work will be stored in the memory stick's 'Documents' folder.  You will be able to start the program by clicking the 'Start ReportPlus' icon on the memory stick.   This is a standalone solution, no work or settings are stored on the computer or the network, it is also compatible with the 'PortableApps' menu system.

 

If you have a U3 smart memory stick then we recommend you use the special U3 install program, but you can install this version if you like.

 

Install to your Dropbox folder (if available):

 

This will install to your Dropbox folder (if available).  Your work will be stored in your Dropbox's 'Documents' folder. You will be able to start the program by clicking the 'Start ReportPlus'' icon within your Dropbox folder.

 

Note: If you have Dropbox installed on more than one computer, you only have to install ReportPlus to one of them - the other computers will automatically install the program.

 

If you don't see the Dropbox option, yet do have Dropbox installed then make sure you are using the latest Dropbox release - go to Dropbox.com and re-install.

 

Dropbox is FREE software that syncs your files online and across your computers. See Dropbox.com for more information.

 

Install to your Google Drive folder (if available):

 

This will install to your Google Dive folder (if available).  Your work will be stored in your Google Drive's 'Documents' folder. You will be able to start the program by clicking the 'Start ReportPlus'' icon within your Google Drive folder.

 

Note: If you have Google Drive installed on more than one computer, you only have to install ReportPlus to one of them - the other computers will automatically install the program.

 

Google Drive is FREE software that syncs your files online and across your computers. See drive.Google.com for more information.

 

Caution: Google Drive is new and support is currently experimental, in our tests it appears to be less reliable than using DropBox.

 

Custom install options (Advanced use only):

 

This install type will enable you to select various options for install i.e. install to a central network drive. For more information see the custom install section of help.
