I'm having some of the same issues on our Win7 machines. Students purchasing new laptops or desktops will have the Win7 OS installed, not XP or Vista, so I'm not real hopeful at this time with Blio to recommend it.

Yes, Susan. I think Blio is currently "undercooked." Maybe the next version will handle some of the problems I discovered and fix the install problems. Though I'm excited about the ReadAloud feature and some of the other promising tidbits, overall the thing needs work.

Thanks Ken. I really wanted this to work. But even with my higher-end XP machine, Blio installed but won't run. I can't even figure out why, it gives no useful error message for me to look at. I'm disappointed. We're still an XP campus, as are many others out there. I have a laptop with Vista so may try it on that one, but that won't help my students and will lead me to give a very poor review of the product in the end.
