I really have liked using it for this specific purpose (takes me out of JMP!). However, over the past few months, issues have started cropping up with (some, not all) Windows 7 machines (which I am personally not very familiar with). Most of these problems are cleared when I manually and individually install all the required packages one by one. However, this is tedious to do for me, an instructor, for each and every student, and also means that the main appeal of Deducer: one-click install and GUI is lost.

A question like this could only be answered by the maintainer of the 
package.  Have you tried writing there?  (You might already know the 
answer if you've reported the "issues" to them.)
