    Files on C drive not viewable to our students

    I'm testing Multimedial Fusion 2 for our school district. Our school system does not allow students to "see" the C drive. Is there a network version available to resolve this? Right now the kids can not access files such as the sounds for the tutorial. Any help would be appreciated.

    You can make the path to the libraries be any drive letter you require.

    Open the library toolbar
    Right click in the white space below the "Local libraries" link
    Select new
    Define the path to where you have the libraries stored

    You would also need to simply store any sound files and other media elements the students need on an accessible location to them and they can import them in from anyplace.

    Thanks for the reply, the problem is not just the letter C it is any drive. When a student logs in to our system all they can see is there own documents files and files that are in the start menu.

    There must be some location you could install them into so the students can see them? Or write a little program they could run so it copies the needed files into their documents folder.

    If worse comes to worse I suppose you could put everything on a CD and they could access the required media elements off that.

    I hate to tell you, but that isn't a problem for students that want access. Everything in the start menu is only a shortcut to programs on the C: drive after all, so it is possible to access, you've just hidden it from them. Some workarounds used by students are: create a shortcut to the c: drive (by typing c: into create shortcut instead of using browse), then double-click it; or using the run command on the start menu to open the c: drive; or putting file:///c: into a web browser; or many other methods.

    It shouldn't be a problem for your IT dept to make one folder visible so that it can be used with MMF.
