FHC Application Finder

I used to be able to install various software packages using the FHC Application Finder. Now, on *all* of the FHC computers in my stake, when I launch that, the first screen says "This install is ONLY for official Family History Centers sponsored by FamilySearch. Continue?". I click "...

Re: Tithing Settlement Declaration Submit Button Missing

I've had a bishop ask where the submit button was. The progress bar was at 100%. I looked through his check marks and, sure enough, one was unchecked (stake clerks can see the tithing status reports). I told him which it was, he checked it and viola! A button appeared. The progress bar shows the rou...

Re: Email semi-annual stake conference report?

1. Go to LDS.org/LCR. Under "Reports | Forms", I show "Stake Conferences" as my third item down (Stake Clerk). There is a list of past and upcoming stake conferences, the reports and attendances that were reported. For a new stake conference, this is where you can submit your rep...

Email semi-annual stake conference report?

I have the semi-annual stake conference report in electronic format. Is it possible to e-mail it to the Church? If so, what e-mail address?

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade

One of my 12 computers was upgraded manually, and Sophos wouldn't work. the help desk told me to revert to Windows 7 and wait for the upgrade to be downloaded from Church Headquarters, which occurred a couple of days later. In another case, where the Windows 10 upgrade failed (the computer rebooted ...

Re: Questions about the recent Win10 announcement

As the STS, I'd recommending creating a "Stake" account with administrative privileges so the folks can't lock me out of the computer.

Re: MLS Won't Run After Windows 10 Upgrade

If MLS is fully upgraded and won't run, there are instructions that appear on the screen, after the Windows 10 upgrade, to change the program to run in compatibility mode for Windows 7. I haven't had to do this on any of the computers that were upgraded in our stake (10 so far).

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade

I'm the stake clerk and also the stake technology specialist in my stake. I have 12 unit administrative computers. In the last three days, 11 of them have been upgraded to Windows 10. After the first two days, three units (that did not receive the on-screen notice that Windows would be upgraded) had...

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade

The upgrade will be done without human intervention. Also, they're apparently going to move fairly slowly. They're only allowing a few days for each group of computers to upgrade. If all of your computers are not left on, one or more of them may not be upgraded.
