ArchiCAD Training Guide - problems with running

Not applicable
Hey people

Im a new user of the ArchiCAD software. Today i downloaded the ArchiCAD training guide fpr windows XP and installed it. Massive file (780mb). any way when i went to open it i go the following message.

No data is allowed between educational and commercial projects. To perform this operation, you should first convert the commercial-version file to an EDU version, by opening it in an EDU-mode ArchiCAD and then resaving it,

Un teamwork mode you need to reshare you EDU project before you sign in.

Has anyone got any idea how to fix this, as i have no idea what i have to do, and the help files where of no help.

I do have problems with some of the video files not opening (internal error).
I have downloaded the whole file 3-4 times but every time I meet the same problem.

Does downloading and installing the Codec's from under the utilities tab solve the video playback problem?

I sort of remember seeing the problem before.
I think my solution was to open the movie files in QuickTime, that was possible so at least I could watch them.

Which AC Tutorial is it that has this problem for you?
