    SIMS Client Install

    I haven't performed a client install for a while and it seems to of changed. During install now a screen appears with the following options:

    Local SIMS directory: C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net

    Shared SIMS Applications Directory: C:\SIMS

    I don't remember the C:\SIMS option from before and looking at other stations there isn't a C:\SIMS folder, can/should this be changed to a drive on the server or other location? I really hate it when apps place folders directly in the root of C:\

    Thanks.

    The shared SIMS folder means your SIMS directory, most likely on the fileserver, so probably something like S:\SIMS. It will be the location where the SIMSCentralServerSetup.exe installs its payload.

    OT but what do people use to install SIMS? I still use the SIMSINST.exe to setup a workstation, just wondere if this is what everyone else uses or if there is a newer installer!?
