#29 Running but blocks exam

v1.0 (example)

I configured the latest Safe Exam Browser 1.9.0 and installed it on a laptop. I left the settings as default, but set the opening URL to my Moodle site. As a Moodle student, I then opened safe Exam browser, which opens my moodle site. I go to the quiz I have set as "Only open in Safe Exam Browser", and guess what, it doesn't open. It tells me it must be opened through safe exam browser, but I opened everything through Safe Exam Browser! Am I missing something obvious or is it a bug with 1.9 and Moodle? I'm running Moodle 2.1.5 (Build: 20120312). The machine is still running Windows XP until the state government goes to Windows 7 in about a month. Thanks!!

    We didn't had this kind of problems with SEB 1.9.0. We just checked it with our Moodle installation and the "Only open in Safe Exam Browser" option works here as it should. I guess there's something wrong with the Moodle version or installation you're using.

    But there's a general problem with that Moodle version: From Moodle 2.0 the exam mode was not working properly, all the Moodle bread crumbs (the navigation links to other parts of the LMS and "logout") are still displayed even during the exam. We released a patch for Moodle version 2.3.x on our website fixing this problem: http://www.safeexambrowser.org/download_en.html#Moodle

    In the new Moodle version 2.4 the problem already is fixed.

    So you should anyways update your Moodle installation. Then also the Safe Exam Browser option in quiz mode should be working.

    In recent Moodle versions the Safe Exam Browser option in quiz mode is working correctly.
