    Options 5 - "cannot read 'n' implementations"

    Hi guys,

    Just replaced our Timetabler's computer. Installed SIMS as normal.
    Jumping into Options 5, Implementation Manager pops up with the message "cannot read 'n' implementations" ('n' just happens to be 10).
    No problems on his old machine or any other computer so it's not an issue with the Options directory on the server as the KB article from Capita suggests.
    Permissions are correct (same problem occurs when logged on as administrator) and the OS is the same as others in the school where it all works.

    Any suggestions? (awaits notification from brilliant Edugeek app!)

    Ta.

    Anyone any thoughts on this?
    As a test, I replace Sims.ini on the problem machine with a copy from a working machine. Still no joy.

    I found sometimes the old SIMS support bits dont install properly, so try running simsinfrastructure again...

    That sorted mine out last time...

    I think the answer you require is:

    • Ensure you're in the directory S:\sims\setups
    • Run NOVASatelliteSetup.exe. Point this at the local workstation
    • Then run C:\program files\sims\sats\BDE511\setup.exe

    This needs to be done on each PC that has the problem.

    It's the Borland Database Engine part that's needed. Had this on a few computers.

    Definitely just run SIMSInfrastructure. Done this twice in the last week to fix this problem. It is indeed the old Borland 'bits that are missing - to be able to read the Options .dbf files.

    Thanks, guys.
    Was, indeed, all the Borland stuff that was missing. Quick run of SIMSInfrastructure sorted it out.
