    looks fine to me.

    You shouldn't need to do a manual update, as the first time sims runs it will query the server for updates

    Thanks for that! What about updating FMS? We are on 6.85 on the existing workstation but the CD will install something like 6.7x on the new workstation. Will this be automatically updated as well on first run?

    Edit: Capita are sending me v6.83 on CD which is an installable version apparently.

    yeah, FMS should find the installer, you've just gotta remember to back up the ones on the server before running the install cd, then replace them again.

    FMS should then automatically upgrade

    EDIT: interesting side-note, if you edit the local sims.ini file in the windows directory, you can change the SIMS and FMS upgrade paths- useful if, like us, you're split site and want to have different locations for updates for different sites
