For a couple of months now, my Windows 7 installation on my Compaq presario CQ62 laptop has been acting up while on battery power. I live in a country where the power supply is sporadic so at certain times of the day, there is no power supply and you are left depending on your Laptop’s battery power. While the power supply is on, my Laptop running Windows 7 works perfectly fine but once the power supply cuts off, the Windows 7 operating system grinds to a halt. Once this happens, you can’t even close an already opened application until the power supply comes back on. This particular laptop has an installation of Ubuntu 13.10 running on a separate partition and works perfectly fine while on power supply and battery power. I am in the process of sorting out the windows 7 battery power issue but while that is ongoing, I need to run some Windows applications on Ubuntu and Visual certexam is one of those applications. This article explains the installation process of Visual certexam on Ubuntu and I hope it helps anyone who needs to install Visual certexam on a Linux operating system.
