- Issue with LockDown Browser for Mac with Java Update 31
There is an issue with Respondus LockDown Browser for Mac users running the latest Java update (1.6.0_31). The problem occurs during the startup of the Mac version of LockDown Browser or when submitting a test, which can cause the software to stop working and freeze your computer. Respondus has resolved the issue and does not expect future versions of Java to cause similar issues. To get the fix from Respondus, you must download and install the full version of LockDown Browser (version 220.127.116.11) from our software Installation page. The update process within LockDown Browser does not contain the latest fix, so use the previous link to get the full version.
If you experienced the problem mentioned above, visit the LockDown Browser Troubleshooting page for instructions to reset your computer.

Respondus LockDown Browser™ is a customized browser that increases the security of online testing in SacCT. It prevents students from printing, copying, going to another website, or accessing other applications during an assessment. If a SacCT assessment requires that Respondus LockDown Browser be used, the assessment won't be accessible with a standard Web browser.
Respondus LockDown Browser should only be used for taking assessments in SacCT. It should not be used in other areas of SacCT or to visit other websites.
Note: This software works only with Internet Explorer (Windows) and Safari (Macintosh) browsers.
Some of you may be taking a video based distance education course that is streamed online, giving you the option of watching a class live or viewing the archived lecture. To learn more visit:
