RE: Development of FISAP Version 3.1 to Resolve Installation Error

Recently, a number of schools have reported encountering a
"componentmovedata" error message when attempting to install
Version 3.0 of the Department's FISAP software. Version 3.0 includes
the Fiscal Operations Report for program participation during the award
year July 1, 1999 through June 30, 2000 and the Application to
Participate for the award year July 1, 2001 through June 30, 2002.
We wish to provide you with more information on this install
message and what we are doing to resolve it.

We have researched the FISAP Version 3.0 "componentmovedata" error
and found the source to be a DLL file that was not marked as a "shared"
file. We have also found that this installation error occurs more often
(though not consistently) on PCs that have not had another ED software
product installed on them, such as EDExpress Version 6.2. The error
occurs in all currently supported Windows versions (Windows 95, NT, and 98).

In order to resolve this installation message for schools that are
receiving it and cannot install the new FISAP software, we are currently
developing FISAP Version 3.1.

Version 3.1 will not differ from Version 3.0 in terms of its central FISAP
functionality; no features, options, or functionality will change in Version 3.1,
except for the resolution of the installation error. If you have already
successfully installed Version 3.0, you will not need to install Version 3.1.

We have developed a workaround for the Version 3.0 installation error. If
you do not wish to wait for the release of Version 3.1 on the SFAdownload
site, which should occur in the next week, please contact CPS Customer
Service at 800/330-5947, option 8, or via email at CPS@NCS.COM.

We will send a follow-up network message to all destination points when
FISAP Version 3.1 is available to schools on the SFAdownload site. We
regret any inconvenience this issue may have caused you.
