The following file formats are supported by Mind Express 5:
To use the Mind Express 5 Media Library over a network, the file globalsettings.xml has to be edited on every computer that will make use of the network share. This can be done as follows:
It also needs to be noted that sharing the Media Library on a network means it becomes possible for several persons to try and edit a certain document on the network. This will not work. We recommend you make sure only one person at one time tries to edit a certain document.

The function keys (e.g. F2 for edit mode) may no longer respond if Mind Express is restarted after crashing or being closed improperly. This is due to conflict that arises between the hooks (supporting pieces of software) that have failed to shut down properly with the original instance of Mind Express and the hooks that are launched with the new instance of Mind Express. It can be remedied as follows:
Alternate ways of doing this are logging off and on to Windows or rebooting the computer.
An error occurred while trying to replace the existing file: DeleteFile failed; code 5. Access denied.
This error indicates that the installer is trying to overwrite a file that is already in use. The error can usually be fixed by closing Mind Express 5 and clicking retry.
If this doesn’t stop the error from appearing, it is usually because of processes that stayed active after a previous instance of Mind Express 5 crashed – in particular the files HMHelp32.exe and HMHelp64.exe (in directory C:Program FilesMind Express 4 or C:Program Files (x86)Mind Express 5). These processes can be shut down manually from the Task Manager. Alternatively, you can simply log off and on again to your Windows account.

Visit www.mindexpress.org and the latest version number will be listed there.
If your computer that you want to update is connected to the internet then in Mind Express select Help > Check for updates… and follow the onscreen instructions.
If the computer you are trying to update is not connected to the internet then you can download an update file from www.jabblasoft.com and copy to a memory stick. Then close Mind Express on the computer you want to update and then run the update file from the memory stick to update Mind Express to the latest version.
You can copy the contents of a Mind Express 5 DVD to a USB flash drive and perform the setup in the same way as you would when running it from the DVD.
If you copy the contents of a Mind Express 5 demo DVD to a USB flash drive, please remove file democd.ini first; this allows you to indicate whether you want to install the HASP or PCGuard version of the software.
Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if any of these steps fail.

There are three ways of doing this:
MP4 files are not supported by default by Mind Express 5. You can either choose to convert your mp4 files to a supported file format, or you can do the following:
In order to be able to make phone call from Mind Express 5 with the Mobi 2, make sure the Mobi 2 option is checked in Tools > Add-ons. If this isn’t the case, check the item and click OK twice to restart Mind Express 5. The Mobi 2 functions will now be installed.
Now you can edit your communication grid and add a cell with the action Mobi 2 > Microphone On and a cell with the action Mobi 2 > Microphone Off. The caregiver can then click on the first cell whenever she wants to say something during a call.
At the end of the call, she can click on the second cell to turn the microphone off again. Alternatively, the action Mobi 2 > Microphone Off can be added to the cell that is used for exiting the call page. Another option is to add the action Mobi 2 > Microphone Off to both the cell Answer and the cell Hang up. This ensures that the microphone is always off by default when starting a phone call.
IVR menus cannot actually detect which button you press, but respond to corresponding tone sent when the button is pressed. By creating a telephone keypad page in which each tile plays the corresponding DTMF tone, you can navigate through IVR menus.
