A number of schools have reported problems installing and running the BlackCat suite of software on Windows 7.
All the Blackcat titles on Windows 7 Home have been tested and found the following:
|Decisions3||Version 188.8.131.52||Works properly – no issues|
|Fresco||Version 1.15||Works properly – no issues.
We’re aware that the older installer for Fresco has a small bug which results in the Undo button not working. This is easily resolved. Creating a folder called undo in the Fresco installation folder will resolve this issue. ie C:\Program Files\BlackCat\Fresco\undo
|Information Workshop 2000||Version 2.1.4||Works but File -> Save OR File -> Open causes the application to crash therefore making it unusable|
|Logo||Version 1.2||After installation there are error with switching levels within the software. Copying the settings folder from the C:\Program Files\BlackCat\Logo to the default work folder\Logo appears to solve the issue. The levels are listed as UNKNOWN but everything works properly.|
|NumberBox||Version 2.2.0||An error (HTML Help Class – Shdocvw.dll is not registered…) is shown on launching the application. Clicking OK on the two error boxes seems to skip the issue. Trying to Open or Save a file causes the application to crash therefore making it unusable.|
|PawPrints||Version 1.2.1||Works without any issues|
|WriteAway||Version 1||Reports error on installation.
File association with .waw files doesn’t work. This can be fixed manually but there are further issues eg Word Banks in Green Level don’t work.
