ExamLab is now Vista Ready

If you have never heard anything about ExamLab before, it is a free mock exam simulator which is specially designed for SCJP 5.0 / 6.0 aspirants. You may find some more information about ExamLab in this topic as well.

Although ExamLab was very popular (especially around the JavaRanch SCJP forum), it was not such a valuable tool for most of the Vista users. As they claimed, they were unable to install ExamLab properly on their Vista computers due to several reasons. Unfortunately it was not worked on some 'few' Windows XP users too. After receiving thousands of complaints from those users, I tempted to create a new version by completely modifying its internal structure. So, this would be a good news for those who were unable to install ExamLab before. The new Vista-ready version is mow available as a beta version to download from the following location:

http://www.examlab.tk/beta

The above beta version should hopefully work on any computer where Windows is running - no matter whatever the version is. On the other hand, the requirement of Windows administrator privileges is not much strict as before - you may be able to install this beta version of ExamLab, even without having full administrator rights.

Since this is a beta version, I need to know how it works on your computer. Your inputs will be helpful in order to improve the product within the beta period. Please provide all your comments, suggestions, and complaints by visiting the following web page, or by replying to this topic.

At last, but not least, I would thank Ankit Garg (who is a bartender here) for performing the Alpha testing case on this new version. Thanks Ankit for your efforts.

Vista fellas, hope you all enjoy ExamLab,

Devaka Cooray,

Congrats

You might also want to consider enabling it for windows 7. Is it Windows 7 ready ?

haha. Sure is. Given that MS saw a 60% profit increase over Windows 7 sales, it would be a good idea to keep an eye on compatibility with that OS.

Deepak,
I hope this new version is compatible with Windows 7 as well, but I've not yet tested it on Windows 7.

Dishi, do you have administrator or other proper privileges that grants the installer to modify the registry?

Thanks for the concern.

Hello all...
I was able to install xp version of ExamLab few days ago on
my windows 7 machine, it got installed perfectly....

Good Work Devaka

If Devaka won't mind i would suggest to make the software linux compliant ...

Actually i heard ExamLab questions are more challenging , that's why i am
going to attempt practice exams after my full preparation...

Once again congrats Devaka...

it requires lots of time and energy to constantly provide the support than to write a program.
