Many of us find it a little annoying that SIMS doesn't come with an .msi installer. But not to worry I have put together a script to do the job. To get yourself setup follow the following setps. Download the attached .zip fileInside the root of the source folder populate it with the following installer files SIMSAMPARKSetup.exe, SIMSApplicationSetup.exe, SIMSInfrastructureSetup.exe & SIMSManualSetup.exeAlso inside the same folder put your connect.ini file.

Long story short, Java started including an expiration timer on JRE releases. So many days after a release, regardless of update settings, a dialog will start popping up asking the user to update. This really isn't an issue, but with it JRE will stop running unsigned code. Many sites that my teaching staff have come to rely on have unsigned Java apps, and keeping over 500 frozen wireless laptops up to date every time a new version of JRE is released isn't really feasible. So enters VB script
With so much going on at schools today, it's easy to miss things. So why can't your MIS remind you? Here's a simple little widget that lists the SEN reviews in chronological order and highlights any that have gone past their date (in red) and the ones to be done in the next 3 weeks (in green). Oh, and if the learner doesn't have a review date then these are also highlighted (in grey).
A proper, actual, useful tip this time - no half-page on something minor, no phoning it in because I forgot until the last minute, oh no. A proper page and a half on Out of Office replies in Outlook 2010, both how to use them and how they work.

You may find this one useful to send out if you run Webmail on Exchange 2007 - when people end up with IE10 at home through Windows Updates, it breaks the display of Webmail unless you force compatibility mode. It's only a single click, but as with the engineer who charges £100 for a single tap of a hammer, it's all in knowing where to click. ICT Tip 052 - Compatibility Mode in IE.doc
Skipping out number 50 as that was only relevant internally, so on to #51, and continuing a theme from last time as we explain email from first principles. You'd be surprised how many people don't know this: ICT Tip 051 - Reply, Reply All & Forward.doc

A bit of a delayed start to the term - it all goes mad in the first week or so - but time to get back up and running with IT Tips.
This week is an educational Public Service Announcement, because no-one seems to know that BCC exists: ICT Tip 049 - To, CC and BCC.doc
When it announces that it's going to restart in 15 minutes to complete windows updates. at 10:15. And it's the server that hosts the virtual server with SIMS installed.
I had thought I had prevented disaster using this guide: http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-sto...rting-your-pc/
and then running gpupdate /force
However, this turned out to be a false hope, as a phone call from reception to tell me that SIMS
Not all data in Progresso is manually entered. What about all that information collected in the logs? I wanted to see if I could easily view who was logged on so I built this simple widget which looks at today's users and calculates how long they have been using the system. It's surprising what other data is stored, such as the IP address. This gave me the idea to try out the SSRS feature to launch an external URL. So if you click on the IP address a new window will

Did you know that your MIS can help remind you of those really important dates? Why not add the "Todays Birthdays" widget to your dashboard and set the parameters just to look at your Form/Tutor/Registration group. Btw, the widget only looks forward 7 days and the highlighted row is the current day.
