Our policy has always been to offer future updates to the program free-of-charge to our registered customers. This means that your license does not expire when the next version of the Quiz Maker program is released.
There are numerous reasons for our decision to stop the future development of a program which for more than 10 years has been the flagship which we were proud to offer to
customers all over the world. One important reason is that in recent months we have noted a marked increase in the number of customer reports that the ebook and other
executable files in the program are being flagged as potentially dangerous on their systems. This is perhaps due to the panic following the recent 'ransomware' attacks
and the resulting over-reaction of certain internet security and anti-virus companies. Whatever the reason, our tests show that the current trend to very strict
cyber blocking techniques and restrictive anti-ransomware settings makes the installation and trouble-free deployment of the Teaching Templates Quiz Maker program
in its present form almost impossible.
Another reason for the end of the Teaching Templates Quiz Maker development, is the decision by Microsoft to stop their support for Silverlight. Silverlight routines are an important feature in one of the most important TTQM modules.
WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
We have tried to include the most useful features of the Teaching Templates Quiz Maker in one or other of the three remaining TAC-Soft Quiz Maker programs. We have also made several changes to the installation routines and to the assignment of paths for access to the quiz resources. These measures should avoid the majority of the unnecessary security warnings. If you are nevetheless still plagued by false positive reports, please adjust your security program settings to make sure that the TAC-Soft files are scanned without the inaccurate warnings. We guarantee that all the TAC-Soft programs and the unmodified quiz maker files they create are 100% safe and completely free of any malicious content.
