    Unhappy Sims.net standalone workstation

    Can anyone help me?

    I have a copy of the green abbey dataset. A standalone Windows 7 laptop. I want to install sims.net to use the local database. It will not be connected to the network.

    I have a copy of the setup folder.

    Can someone advise me of the steps to installation.

    I installed the following programs:
    CCssQLExpressInst
    SiMSINST
    with the following options selected:
    Computer used a sims workstation
    The computer to be used as a sims sql server
    Computer to be used as a document server

    When I go to run sims.net it prompts me for the connect.ini file which I have pointed to the location c:\program files\sims\connect.ini
    And then nothing happens

    I’m sure I am missing a step or the configuration is wrong.
    Any suggestions of how I can get this working would be great and greatly appreciated :-)

    I assume you attached the database? although even if you didn't, you should receive an error

    I did attach the database using the db atttach function. Still does nothing.

    I would double check the connect.ini contains the correct server/instance and DB name. If its correct then try deleting the SIMS .net folder from the C: drive and re run SIMS.inst from your setups folder (only need to select workstation option, not SQL or DMS)
