Respondus Monitor or Respondus LockDown Browser not launching for students in D2L Brightspace

Why aren't my student's able to launch Respondus Monitor/Lockdown Browser?  |  When I set this up last semester, Respondus worked fine, why isn't it working now that I copied it to this semester's course?

If a quiz has been copied, students may receive an error message when attempting to launch a quiz in Respondus LockDown Browser.

The solutions is to re-launch Respondus LockDown Browser settings for that quiz and course:

  1. Log in to D2L Brightspace at with your StarID credentials.
  2. Click the course you wish to review Respondus in.
  3. From the horizontal navbar click on the down arrow next to Assessment.
  4. In the drop down menu click on Quizzes.
  5. In the horizontal menu in Quizzes, click on LockDown Browser.
  6. In the bottom right hand corner, click on Continue to LockDown Browser.
  7. Follow the prompts to log into LockDown Browser.
  8. Look for the "Fix it" button and click it to re-enable the LockDown Browser.
