Request to download the digital audio lab classroom audio configuration on the fly, program and source for Windows 7

What to do if university websites seem to be not working, nothing happens when you click?

  1. Try and get the popup blocker on your office or lab PC fixed here (if you are on Windows 7 here, you need to use the 64-bit version): choose "Run" – preferable to “Download” and "Open".
  2. Then use Internet Explorer to try again what you were trying to do on one of our websites.
  3. Background:
    1. My users have been reporting for a while problems getting simple things done on campus websites.  Last week I observed a few in their office and in the LRC being stalled by mis- or non-configured popup blocker, and not noticing the cause, being flummoxed.
    2. The above little program configures the built-in internet explorer popup blocker to allow popups from websites that are part of our infrastructure.
    3. It does not attempt to configure other popup blockers, whether inside or outside of this web browser.
    4. The end user  could also try
      1. (holding the key:) CTRL-click on the link where your web browsing fails.
      2. Or configure the popup blocker manually.
    5. However, it would likely be best if this were done via GPO

How to test the LangLabEmailer

  1. The LangLabEmailer, when run, displays no GUI. To monitor:
    1. the progress, view the trace-listener.log;
    2. the results, view:
      1. “_sent” filenames in your assessment file store. NOTE: the LangLabEmailer will rename assessment files, by adding “_sent” to the end of the filename (for easy tracking;no deletions). If this is an issue for you, do not run it!
      2. “sent” items folder of mailbox used ( = mailbox of user logged into AD-domain-joined computer). NOTE: The LangLabEmailer will email assessment files from the language lab collection! (That is its primary purpose.) Specifically, it will send 
        1. as you configured: within your campus email system (unless your campus mail administrator allows mail forwarding),
        2. as you configured:  from the campus mail account you have the right to send from (I have the right to send ca. 3000 messages per day; you may want to inquire with your MS-Exchange admin about your limits),
        3. as you configured:  from the student collection file share classroom data (which has special, relaxed FERPA rules),
        4. per its design – which is primarily based on file ownership which itself is based on who logs in on the originating lab computers and the digital audio lab software’s saving rules for pair and group work, but also by making some honest guesses about the intended recipient, based the file name and, as you configured, the list of teachers using your lab (since from experience these also happen to be logged in for students at times) – , primarily to the presumed originator and to her teacher (and in special cases, as a fallback, to whoever you configured as language lab admin).
        5. If this sounds a tad scary: just start with configuring
          1. a few “dry” test runs (no sending, no renaming, just logging what would happen)
          2. then some limited test runs (small time window and dummy files)
          3. and examine the results which the langlabemailer logs for you in either mode, and you will likely find, it is not scary.
          4. Next: Run. Or up:Langlabemailer table of contents.

How to troubleshoot and get help with the LangLabEmailer

  1. LangLabEmailer logs its activities automatically.
    1. image
  2. Please consult the log files which you can find
    1. if you search C:\Users\[your user name]\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\Data
    2. for the files
      1. trace-rolling.log” (contains activity log messages).
      2. and, should you run into an Exception, “exception-rolling.log”.
    3. Useful information about the LangLabEmailer working with your MS-Exchange configuration is automatically kept in the same folder:  EwsResponseHttpHeaders.txt, AutodiscoverConfiguration.txt, AutodiscoverRequest.txt, AutodiscoverRequestHttpHeaders.txt, AutodiscoverResponse.txt, AutodiscoverResponseHttpHeaders.txt, EwsRequest.txt, EwsRequestHttpHeaders.txt, EwsResponse.txt.
