Preliminary System Test
We encourage you to take a brief system test prior to the webinar to confirm that the computer you will be using is compatible with the online presentation software. This will provide time for you to work with your IT staff in case there are any technical issues.
System Test Instructions:
To test your computer, go to www.ec.commpartners.com. To take the browser test, click the "Support" tab at the top of the page. A box will open. Click the "Run Test" button on the right. If you do not pass the test, follow the prompts to install Adobe Flash. For additional assistance, contact technical support at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (800) 274-9390.
You should see a green dot and a message that reads, "You have passed the system test!" For additional assistance, contact technical support at CHA@commpartners.com or call (800) 274-9390.
Performing the system test will help ensure a smooth online event experience. In addition to taking the test above, please ensure your computer has the following:
- Internet Explorer 7.0 or later (recommended), Firefox, Safari or other major browser.
- Steady Internet connection, such as cable or DSL, 56K or above.
