    Missing file: "newsimsdatabase.mdf"

    I am trying to set-up a blank SIMS server, but when I go to run SIMSINST.exe it gets to the SIMSDB install, brings up the window to attach a new SIMS database, but then can't continue. If I try to move on I get a message saying:

    Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

    Could not find the file 'W:\simsroot\sims\setups\newsimsdatabase.mdf'.

    I have checked on the current working server and this file is missing. I have also looked on SupportNet and can't find this file.

    Can anyone send me this file??

    No, is different for each version (of simsinst). Contact your support team and ask for the latest SIMS installable media (comes as an ISO).

    PS: I normally use 7zip to extract the files.
