Important file and folder permissions

For both LASS 8-11 and LASS 11-15, All users should have Read/Write and Modify permissions set on the folder ‘5.06’ and all its subfolders. The Start-up Menu always checks and gives a warning in case this folder is only 'Read-Only'.

Date formats

LASS needs to make use of dates, including dates of birth. All dates should be in the UK format dd/mm/yy or dd/mm/yyyy. The Start-up Menu always checks for this date format when it runs. It is possible to change this format using Regional and Language Options in the Windows ® Control Panel.
