    Unhappy FMS ini File

    Hello,

    One of our users asked for FMS installed the other day... Installed fine! But everytime she tries to open it now it cannot find the ini file and you have to manually select the S drive for it to log in. I have come across this before but for the life of me cant remember what the fix was...

    Cheers,

    Just a guess, but sounds like she doesn't have write permissions to c:\program files\sims

    When you select where the connect file is it writes that location into an ini file in the FMS subfolder.

    I always copy and paste a known good fmsconnect.ini file in the C drive otherwise you get all sorts of weird problems......

    UAC/Permissions. FMS will create a FMSConnect.ini file in the FMS folder with a redirect line to the S: drive, but it will be deleted after FMS is closed.

    Right click and run FMS as Admin to permanently store the FMConnect.ini, or manually create one.

    Just a guess but are you sharing the correct INI file via solus 3?
    If I recall there are two versions one which looks at the server direct which needs mapping and another one???
