  1. ok uys, this ones a doozy, i've googled it, no luck. SOS (switch on schoolhouse) is an app from Alpha Omega Academy. yeah, i'm trying to use it, but i can't get it to install on this computer. It says i have all the necessary software, but this is the message i get:

    "Fatal error during installation.
    Error code: 0x00000643"

    I've tried up and down the ying-yang, and i haven't a clue left as what to do, any help, would REALLY be APPRECIATED...untill then i'll just keep trying, thanks people.

    Disconnect the PC from the net, close down all unneeded programs (antivirus, firewall, any anti-whatever, databases etc., then try again.
