    Bit of a long shot but have you updated the client on the SIMS server?

    How many machines actually have the problem? Is it just your desktop?

    Re: SIMS getting stuck when updating.

    Just some tips

    On the client machines I would recommend I would check the following

    C:\windows\sims.ini to see if it is pointing to the right path to the server

    Also what I do is rename the SIMS.NET folder in the program files and rerun the simsinst.exe program for a reinstall on the client machine

    Hope this helps a little for sims users

    Re: SIMS getting stuck when updating.

    Have you tried a delete-then-re-install of SIMS on the PC, so rather than updating the existing install, you're putting a fresh copy of the new one on? Would be interesting to see if the full install fails too (and would give you a sub-3-hour fix too!)
