200 Words a Day! Write Error

Programme has Write Error and not writing to your Database

"When I do lessons, or when I do quizzes it does not seem to record the fact in my schedule. I do the things it prompts me, and then nothing changes ... it still says I need to do the same thing again and again."

Your database is reading the database but not writing to it.
(a very strange occurrence for either Microsoft XP or Vista)

Firstly, if you are using Windows Vista ...

Please check to make sure the 200 Words a Day! programme has been made XP compatible (this will prevent any further Vista problems):

  • Open Computer (from the Start Menu) and navigate to C:\Program Files\Exceltra\French (This is the where it will be by default) or whatever language you've installed the programme)

  • Right click the file French.exe (or other language.exe)

  • On the dropdown menu, click the Compatibility tab at the top of the window.

  • Select Compatibility Mode - Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP.

  • Select Privilege Level - Run this program as an Administrator

  • Click OK.

To correct the "Write Error" Problem on all Versions of Windows

  • Using Start \ My Computer (Vista has dropped the "My" prefix and simply calls it "Computer").

  • Navigate to C:\Program Files\Exceltra\French*. This is the default location - or navigate to where you have saved the software. (*the language you have installed)

  • Right-click the file Exceltra French.mdb (or appropriate language)

  • Select Properties.

  • Near the foot of the Properties Window, is a box Attributes - Read Only. This will have a tick against the item.

  • Untick the item (by clicking the tick).

  • Click OK.

The 200 Words a Day! software will now function correctly.
