Mavis Beacon 18 does not save users from log-in to log-in
We are using Mavis Beacon 18 for Mac. We have 31 copies, and installed MB on each of our computers. Our students have individual logins, with limited access to areas on the computer (i.e. hard drive, etc.)If we log in on the administrative user on the computer, MB saves each user. However, if an individual student logs in, Mavis does not save their login or work. They must begin all over again each time they log in. Is there a fix we can use? Where does Mavis store user data?
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

However to install it so that it can run, you explore the file on the flash drive or the one transferred to the computer and look for a file called Setup or with the title name of the software Mavis. Select and click. The installer should open to guide you through the installation.
