    Old SIMS Launcher Personnel Exe

    Our bursar has been using the old personnel system (the one that runs from launcher) just to get information. Today she tries and gets the message
    'File c:\program files\SIMS\SIMS .net\personw.exe does not exist.'

    Obviously the exe isn't on the c: drive. She reckons she's used it this school year. I ran the September upgrade earlier week.

    Any ideas whether the September release would have removed the exe, and is there a way I can get hold of, and re-instate the exe - safely? Although I must say I'm very nervous about trying to do it!

    Thanks for any help

    I would recommend you run the Sims Applications program from the Sims Directory > Setups > SimsApplications

    Also I would recommend you have .net v2.0 installed on the machine aswell :-)

    caused by the fact that SIMScentralserver.exe has altered the location and mapping to the shortcuts....

    i understand this may happen if you have your central directory for shared components and files is the same as your sims .net directory (probably not the most resource friendly setup! ). If you re-run simsapplicationsetup this should fix the problem.

    Thanks all,

    I've tried re-running the applicationsetup.exe and we have .net 2 but it still fails with the

    'File c:\program files\SIMS\SIMS .net\personw.exe does not exist.'

    Perhaps I didn't explain too well. The personnel application I'm trying to get to run is the old one from the original SIMS Launcher (the one that used the DOS system manager).

    It's at s:\sims\personw.exe on our sims server, but I haven't run it in years.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for your help especially Pete who gave me a hint with the path to the exe. I found it on an old backup tape, copied it across and all appears to be well.

    Thanks again.
