    Windows 7 issue.

    I'm also x-posting this onto the W7 forum.

    I upgraded my laptop to W7 RC1. Absolutely everything is fine, all settings, programs, documents, etc were migrated over by the superb W7 upgrade tool. No issues at all.

    SIMS loaded and ran fine, browsing the focus pages is AOK. On clicking the System link however the following error presented:

    “The procedure entry point I_NetNameCanonicalize could not be located in the dynamic link library NETAPI32.dll”

    I thought this might simply be a migration issue so I completely uninstalled SIMS and re-installed but the same error presented.

    Has anyone else come across this. Is there a fix?

    No, SIMS or .Net issue.

    Netapi32.dll is part of the .Net library. Check you have all the .Net runtimes installed (1.1, 2, 3, 3.5 and 3.5SP2) and then blame SIMS.

    Nah! Had no problem with it running on Vista, even on SP2 beta.

    It's going to have to run on W7 at some point and this is a test run, as is W7 itself on this machine.

    Well, netapi32.dll is present.

    Passed it on to Capita support.

    Doesn't mean that symbol is in the version on your disk.

    Are you using 64bit or 32bit Windows 7? Also, I doubt Capita support will do anything, as it isn't supported!

    They're not truly backwards-compatible, and I don't know which version SIMS requires.
