Help with Errors When Downloading from MyRCS
Students are able to retrieve any type of file at home saved on their H:\ at school using MyRCS. However, if you're getting an error message trying, follow these steps:

  1. Once you're in the MyRCS Home Directory window, right click on the file you want to open.
  2. Select "Open with..."
  3. Select "Local Application"

The error occurs when you double click on a file, say a Microsoft Word document for example. Your computer tries to open it using your web browser instead of Word and can't, so you get an error. When you tell it to open with a local application, meaning a program on your home computer, it automatically detects that file is a Word .doc file and will use Microsoft Word to open it.
