Lightning Express works well. Or at least as well as anything that is
free. The only problem is that the executable needs to be run from
the website daily for it to continue working. It works on Win XP,
Vista, and 7.
If you have network licensing for MAGic or ZoomText you may be able to
access the license server on your network with the laptops. MAGic is
usually the easieest to do this with because you need no special read
permissions for the folder on the server.
