For in-class exams, Examsoft Softest-M in secure mode needs as much memory to start. 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 close as many applications to give Examsoft's exam software a clean start. Failing to do so may introduce unknown technical anomalies during your exam.


* After you have closed all of your applications and Examsoft's exam software still does not want to launch, disable your Anti-virus program,  and then 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 your laptop computer and Softest will upload your exam as normal once Examsoft Softest finds a WiFi connection, e.g. SCU-Student or SCU-Guest.
