    SIMS.net post August 2007 "Cannot run due to restrictions"

    It was too good to be true. I thought I had managed to migrate and update in one fell swoop but there's a problem.

    SIMS.net won't run for normal users. Something to do with restriction on this computer. Now that's really strange because our electronic registration software runs no porblem. It's just the SIMS client that's the issue.

    I've checked permissions on the app folder and they seem to be OK.
    I haven't done any SRP stuff for staff users so I'm really confused.

    Oh fiddle sticks! I did not need this. My schedule is tight enough as it is

    Is that the exact error you receive?

    Presumably the SIMS server name has changed as part of the migration?

    I know you say that SRP shouldn't be affecting users, but that's what I forgot to do when I migrated to a new server name. Just had to modify the path (allow) rule to allow executables in the SIMS setups folder on the server to run, for SOLUS.

    On the workstations, check the validity of the simssetupsdirectory path in SIMS.ini, check connect.ini paths as well.

    No it was more basic than that. The test user was in a group called NoSIMS. You can guess the rest ops:

    Oh well, better red faces now thann when term starts

    Phew!
