Has anyone encountered this problem described below. I have admin rights in the PC. I checked by deleting an unwanted registry key.
Here's the problem.
The operating System I am running is win XP ver 2002
1) I downloaded setup file from
2) Right click on (SCExamLab.exe) and select Properties. In the Properties dialog, select the "Compatibility" tab and select the compatibility mode for "Windows 98 / Windows Me".
3) Install the program (with Microsoft JET driver).
4) Then I got error "some of the files are outdated , can we upgrade them" Then I selected "yes"
5)Then installed and clicked on ExamLab executable I get following,
"error occured while accessing internal files"
6) Then still it dispaly to enter the security word.
After reentering (TE3iV) I got,
"An error occured while registering your copy. cannot complete the registration. Please retry"
Then it brings me back to the explorer screen where I saved my executable "ExamLab"
I looked at the .txts (ie. wiaservc.txt, wiadebug.txt) that the installer writes in to c:\windows, didnt see any unusual error.

Welcome to JavaRanch
I don't know is this the appropriate forum to talk about this problem. However I think, there are some errors with your Operating System.
I've installed this few weeks ago, but I didn't get any error message yet. My O/S also Windows XP. It works in good condition; actually Exam Lab is an excellent product
I suggest you to check this again, by disabling your virus scanner and reinstalling exam lab.
If you could not solve the problem, I think you can give the final attempt by reinstall the O/S.

You may want to send Devaka a private message about this as I don't think this is a common problem. You can find him half way down on this post:

Yeah, this question is probably posted in the wrong location. However, since the author of the mock in question, does hang out here, I'll just lock this topic. And assume that the OP will contact directly.
