client not loading
anyone else having issues today with sims just not loading?
run the normal shortcut and it does absolutely nothing but pulsar.exe on its own works fine. Wondering if its related to windows updates seems to of happened to several pcs at roughly the same time, Currently rolling back one pc to see if that fixes it

I created my own shortcut to Pulsar.exe which always runs perfectly and quicker and this is what I use in the teaching staff program sets.
I used to use the shortcuts created by the installation but it was always the wrong shortcut for the version or something else so decided once and for all to just create the above, has been working ever since and I never have to touch it again.

The default shortcuts still call SIMSLoad I believe, which is pointless if you're running SOLUS3. Ditch them and it loads more quickly!

If you have SOLUS3, you'll usually have the SOLUS agent icon in your system tray (black and brown box with a blue circle on it).

SIMSLoad on it's own does nothing if it finds that no update is needed. Check that the link being clicked also has pulsar being passed as a parameter after it. It will then run pulsar after it completes.
You can run pulsar direct if on SOLUS 3, or happy to manage your own updates
edit: I only say this because it's possible for a user to find and click the wrong links. It was common on Win 7 to search for SIMS and use the one without ".net" after it which is just pulsar and it fails. Or when a user had saved a shortcut to the start/task bar and it wasn't complete for some reason.
Be interested to know if the rollback worked.
