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 prior to starting Softest:
Microsoft One Drive
Google (Drive) Sync
Utorrent ( or any torrent app)
Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, etc.)
In addition, disable your Anti-Virus applications if Softest still doesn't launch.
After you have successfully closed Softest and the Softest upload process is still timing out, then restart your PC laptop. Once all your services (AV, SafeConnect Policy key, and WiFI) have re-started, Softest will launch its upload app normally. If you are still having issues, then tech support will stop by to help you.
