Lockdown Browser Lab Version 1 End of Life

06/15/2016 – Lockdown Browser Lab Version 1 End of Life (Windows)
On June 30, 2016 – the “Lab Edition” of Lockdown Browser based on Internet Explorer will reach end of life. Lockdown Browser Lab Version 1 will cease functioning.

Note: This update will only affect computers with Lockdown Browser Lab Version 1 installed. If you have Lockdown Browser installed in your own computer this should not affect you.

After June 30th 2016 if a computer has Lockdown Browser Lab Version 1 installed an error message will be received. The message will display the following:


Outdated version of LockDown Browser This version of LockDown Browser is no longer current and must be updated. If this is a public computer, the update must be performed by the manager of the computers.


Why the Update?

In August 2015 Respondus released a Chromium-based version of Lockdown Browser for Windows which is more stable and reliable than version 1.

If you Have Respondus Lockdown Browser Lab Version 1 Installed

Contact the Blackboard Help Desk to receive Respondus Lockdown Browser’s Lab Version 2 installation file which will need to be installed on Lab computers.
