For in-class exams, Examsoft Softest in secure mode needs as much memory to start so if you close all your applications, then it should start as normal.


Apps to close or disable prior to starting Softest:


Any cloud to local sync app (e.g. Microsoft One Drive, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, etc.)

Spotify (or any streaming music service)

Utorrent ( or any torrent app)

Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, etc.)

Steam client (or any gaming app)



* Disable or cloase as many applications to give Examsoft's exam app a clean start. Failing to do so may introduce unknown technical anomalies during your exam.


* After you have closed all of your apps and Examsoft's exam app still does not want to launch, disable your Anti-virus program, and Softest should start up normally.



NOTE: At the end of the exam, you will need to successfully close out of Softest. If the upload process is taking some time or timing out, then restart you laptop computer and Softest will upload your exam as normal once it finds a WiFi connection, e.g. SCU-Student.
