The Livescribe team has kindly organised a social event with Jim on Monday night the 17th February.

    “In a small number of cases, obscure IT environments require further investigation to get the application working. ”

    You mean like the “obscure” bank I work for with over 100k desktop computers? As has been pointed out: the proxy configuration works for checking for updates. However, the update *installer* does not recognize proxy servers. Specifically:

    * Click “Check for Updates” in the Help menu
    * Message says “An Update is Available”
    * Default web browser launches URL
    * Launch the file.
    * Installer runs, showing that it is attempting to download the file named “ld-install-1033.msi”. It then fails almost immediately, reporting “There was a problem downloading the installer. Please try to download and run it again.”

    When running this at home, there are no problems. When running it behind a proxy server,t he same issue happens every time. Reading through the forums show that this has been getting reported for quite some time. I have no doubt that there are organizations without this problem – presumably they are not running behind proxy server configurations. But proxy server usage does not qualify as obscure in any way.

    The in-application proxy configuration works fine. But the installer file needs to download another file to complete the installation (for some reason). This download will fail 100% of the time behind a proxy. It seems that the easiest solution will be to stop using the small “installer” exe, and instead directly offer the file the installer is trying to download. If we had a direct link to that, then it would present no issues.

      thanks for the comment. I appreciate the use of the word ‘obscure’ might be odd – what I mean to say is that there are many different types of environments in corporate and education markets – sometimes the Desktop works faultlessly, sometimes it doesn’t.

      There are a number of work arounds that we can offer to Livescribe users – so if you want to know more contact me via the Smartpen website. We also have access to the major version updates (i.e. LD_2.0.2) – again if you need this, please let me know
