    Terminal Server, SIMS.net and FMS

    Right, we're taking the plunge and providing thin clients to our admin team, which will connect to a working Citrix server farm. I have SIMS.net working but I am wondering about FMS.

    It has now moved to FMS SQL and it doesn't seem to like running - ie. it won't install from the SIMSINST.exe (greyed out), and when you run the FMSApplicationSetup.exe file instead, it installs but when you log in to it it informs you that Crystal Reports is not installed, so reports will not be able to run - which is a bit of a major issue.

    So, anyone have any ideas? Or have it working? If I can overcome this hurdle, it will mean I can roll out to the remaining 2 machines in our admin team - reducing our 'carbon footprint' , and more importantly, keeping my manager happy.

    Have you run the fmsapplicationssetup from the FMS folder within setups folder and not the fmsapplicationsetup which is in the setups folder?

    Running FMS (SQL Server) & SIMS fine over TS - but we're not using Citrix!

    have you tried running simsinfrastructuresetup before doing the fms install? i think that may contain the prerequisites for fms too.

    Ah, that appears to have sorted it.

    I've now got my boss testing it out in normal use. Cheers

    Right, i think i have a further problem all linked to this. Our bursar is now getting a message saying that out of date or missing DLL when they try and export things as xls files. The finance support team have updated and replaced various crystal reports dlls on the SQL server but with no luck.

    Any ideas?
