    Hello, If anyone tests Examsoft functionality on Yosemite - can you please post here.

    Officially Examsoft doesn't support Yosemite yet. Last year they waited a few months to support Mavericks. However, I had an extra computer and was able to take the chance and install Mavericks before 'official support'.

    The examsoft software worked flawlessly with Mavericks.

    I have too many quizzes and exams in the next week to take a risk of it not working due to not having a spare computer to substitute.

    thank you!! can't wait to try Yosemite!:cool:

    Works fine for me. I was able to load up a practice exam without issue.

    Yosemite and Examsoft

    You updated to Yosemite and you were able to open Examsoft, download the exam file, take the exam, and successfully upload the exam?

    I took the plunge and installed Yosemite. I heard from another at my University that his quizzes on Yosemite and exam-soft went fine.

    I'm hoping this will be like Mavericks was last year: where exam-soft waited until after a couple months of stability tests before they officiated it..but it worked solid since day 1.

    I took a 3 hour exam today - examsoft worked like a champ. So far so good - no problems whatsoever.

    to be honest - it actually works with less hiccups now than my Mavericks install because I was running an antivirus with Mavericks. Examsoft and antivirus software fight over control of the system files...lots of lag, lots of freezes.

    If you are running an antivirus - definitely DISABLE it before running examsoft (as recommended by ExamSoft Officially).

    Yosemite rocks for flat screen reading of online textbooks!! Much easier on the eyes.

    A lot of people have said it works fine (including in my class), but some have also said it froze during an exam and has been causing problems. Still not sure if I should upgrade just yet
