    Our product demos are fully functional versions (with the exception being that when you play the game, you are only allowed to play the Sample Game included with the demo). Using the demo, you can test all the functionality of the program.
    If you decide that the software is for you, simply return to this website and order the download version or CD.

I have been having a great time setting it up! It is so user friendly that I can whip through the set up in no time! I am also thrilled with the options of the music, logo, etc. I think my class is going to have a great time with this and I will be able to customize it for many classes in the future!

I just want to send you a GREAT BIG THANK YOU!!

"I tried the software last week and people loved it. Quite a deal. I had so much resistance when I came up with this idea. There were people that refused to take part, but once they were there, got totally caught up in it. It was an excellent tool for review training."

Winsock OCX file isn't registered or is missing   Android Play Store
     

Component 'MSWINSCK.OCX' or one of it's

dependencies is not correctly registered;

a file is missing and invalid

 

  Available on Google Play Store (search for "educational buzzer"). Download and install as you would any other Android app.
     
1. Find MSWINSCK.OCX at the following link:    
    If you download from our website, you must turn off “install applications not obtained via android market” safety feature.
   
     
2. Scan it for viruses.   All apps > Settings > Applications > Unknown sources.
     
3. Copy or move the mswinsck.ocx file into c:\windows\system32.   Some android users may need to locate the APK file in the My Files\Download folder on your phone or android device and run the program.
     
4. You may need to register the OCX file.    
     
     
Registering Winsock instructions    
     
A reminder - to register this program on a Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 machine, you'll have to run the programs (even the COMMAND program) as an administrator.    
     
     
How do I register MSWINSCK.OCX file on Windows 8?    
     
     
     
     
Firewall or blocking peer to peer communication    
     
     
1. Sometimes a network will be setup in order to block peer to peer communication. This is exactly the basis of the smartphone - desktop connection. You will have to ask your network administrators to unblock this in order for your smartphone to communicate with the desktop computer, specifically the program.    
     
2. Sometimes a computer will have a firewall protecting it from the unauthorized access to the computer. A message like the one below will appear when you attempt to start one of our games:    
     
 
     
3. In this event, please click the <Allow access> button, in order for the game to communicate with the android device.    
     
     
     
     
Example of Firewall blocking communication    
     
ZoneAlarm is a free firewall blocking program. We use it on 2 of the machines in our offices. Despite our best efforts, on one machine we always have problems communicating between smartphones and the program that is running on the computer protected by ZoneAlarm.    
     
So here are the steps that we take to get smartphones connected to the program on that machine.    
     
1. We right-click on the ZoneAlarm icon in the tray: *    
     
   
     
2. Then we right-click on the "Snooze Firewall for 5 minutes . . ." *    
     
   
     
Of course, you may wish to turn off ZoneAlarm during the duration of the game, but please, turn it back on when finished with the smartphone enabled program.    
     
     
*Your screen will probably look different than this.    
     
     
     
     
You may mix the use of androids and iPhones as buzz-in devices.
 
However, do not mix the use of smartphones with any other buzz-in device, including buzzers, keyboards and gamepads!
