microsoft vista software RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been trying to pull up an online document for my school website, Blackboard Academic Suite, that is not readable. It seem like the software is not compatible. Has anyone else had this same problem?

  • Hello,


    Microsoft has recently released Vista, a new version of Windows. The visual text boxes used in Blackboard discussion forums and tests/surveys will not work correctly with Internet Explorer 7 in Vista. Blackboard is aware of the issue and is working on a fix.


    If you are using Windows Vista as Operating System, Blackboard will work correctly if you use Firefox as your browser (it can be downloaded at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/).


    For your information, you can check for compatibility on the following website.

    Hope this helps out!
