MeasureUp provides practice exams which I use to prepare for Microsoft Certifications. One of their options for exams is the ability to download the exam and run it locally. I had trouble running them locally for quite awhile. I thought it was something about my machine but finally figured out the problem.
When I tried to run the “Launcher.bat” used to launch the exam, the application screen would come up and be stuck on “We are configuring the application. This process may take a few minutes.”
The fix is really simple once I realized what it was. Go into the \content directory, right-click on Launcher.exe, choose Properties, and choose Unblock. Choose OK. The test will run correctly now.
