Activboard Maintenance and Troubleshooting
|Good processor speed,|
plenty of RAM!
If your computer doesn't have enough RAM, performance will be sluggish, sometimes worse than sluggish. Here's the what a typical Windows XP system should have to run Activstudio—or any graphics-heavy applications:
Activboard (Activstudio) software — current version is 3.7.19
Activstudio (Dashboard > Support tab > Update)
Activpen — hang onto it!
The Activpen is almost never the problem! Almost always, the problem is that Activdriver needs to be up-dated (current version is Activdriver_x32_v18.104.22.168)
All things (eventually) fail on this planet—hard drives, too. You should back up your flipcharts.
Your network probably has a network drive where you can store files safely.
Activboard generally stores flipcharts in My Documents\Activstudio3\My Flipcharts
drag the My Flipcharts folder to your network drive
if you’ve saved a bunch of images, copy the My Images folder there too.
contact your school or district tech to find out the specifics for your situation.
