  6. Internet Explorer 7 • Download included in updates on Microsoft website if updating your home computer • You can choose to download and install or not • Being tested extensively on campus now • Not fully compatible with all current websites • Particular issues with sites using cascading style sheets • Outlook Web Access (OWA) • SAM uses cascading style sheets

  7. Windows Vista • Vista will be default OS on home machines purchased early 2007 • Leased machines will continue to run on Windows XP • AgIT will switch OS to Vista only after testing on our system • No changes will be made during or immediately prior to fair season

  8. Office 2007 • Office 2007 will be default on home machines purchased w/Office early 2007 • Leased machines will continue to have Office 2003 • Office 2007 and earlier versions…. • 2007 saves with .docx extension which is incompatible with 2003 and older. • Can use “save as” and save in 97-2003 format • Can download reader • Important to those who carry documents between home and work.

  9. Office 2007 • AgIT will begin testing Office 2007 after the first of the year • Internal testing will be first • Extension offices to be test sites will be recruited early ‘07 • AgIT will migrate to Office 2007 on all supported machines in 2007 • Migration not likely to occur until after 2007 County Fair Season

  10. Lease Update • Current order has been sent to Gateway • Expect new computers to begin arriving in 3-4 weeks • Printers may begin arriving as soon as 2 weeks • Same process as recent lease process for scheduling installs • Fax packing list to AgIT • AgIT contact to schedule install

  11. Network vs non-supported printers • Several counties have purchased printers with end of year monies • “Supported” printers are those which allow AgIT to manage them remotely • Typically printers on the lease printers list • Only supported new dot matrix printer is the Epson LQ590 • All others will be setup for individual machines in the office rather than put on the network

  12. Extension Database • All 92 counties have been updated to most current version • Reminder – when asked to “sync” always do so • Never store any other files on the “L” drive • Training 12/14 at 2 pm – see Richard’s email • Topic: Online Enrollment • Documentation will be available online • Educators can use the “view only” password to access information in ED without the option to make changes
