    Question SIMSApplicationSetup.exe Hangs on Silent Install

    Morning All

    I'm attempting to do a silent install of SIMS.net on a Windows 2008R2 Server used as a Terminal Server / Citrix.

    The SIMSApplicationSetup.exe program appears to run, it creates the SIMS.net folder and copies over 1000 files in there, however that's it it just hangs there and you can see it in Task Manager. Even if I leave it for a few hours it's still running.

    I'm running the silent install using the following provided by Capita:

    start /wait s:\sims\setups\simsapplicationsetup.exe /S {QuietMode} [SIMSDirectory]="S:\SIMS" [SIMSDotNetDirectory]="C:\Program Files (x86)\SIMS\SIMS .net"

    I can't see anything in any logs etc.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks

    Tom

    Have you tired running it manually to see if it completes?

    I've just re-run the setup and it says it completes successfully and you click close.

    However... 'SIMSApplicationSetup.exe *32' process is still running!

    Very Odd!

    I've just tired the same thing on a Windows XP machine and the install completes fine and the process stops.

    Tried it on several Windows Servers and for some reason it doesn't stop.

    Anyone got any other suggestions?

    Not fully familiar with TS setup, but am I right in thinking the server has to be put into 'installation mode' or something when installing software onto it? Has this been done? Also, any active users connected and using SIMS?

    Yeah, I've put 'Change user /install' as part of the script when installing to put the server into install mode.

    There are no users on the server. Get the same problem if I try and upgrade and existing install or I do a brand new install.
