GE Graph in schools – tech notes

For those of you wishing to use the free and excellent GE Graph program in schools, there are a couple of technical notes to point out. These have been kindly provided by John Watson the IT technician from Wildern School who helped with the two Southampton Google Earth courses.

These may mean nothing to you, but pass on this information to the people responsible for installing GE Graph on the school network and it should help with most glitches.

The .ocx file needed registering. Oddly enough installing the suggested app was enough.. we didn’t even have to run it.

GE graph needs read/write access to the Drive it is installed on. For networked machines this may be a problem as most administrators restrict access to the local drives. Allowing read/write on the GE graph folder was enough for it to run unaffected on our network.
