    Once a printer was mapped, FMS logged on fine.
    That's a known "bug", and has been for nearly 10 years.

    If you have no printer, you can't use FMS.

    Ash.
    Unfortunately the patch didn't work. So its back to the drawing board.

    Having a similarly odd issue which I keep forgetting to speak to the SIMS folks about.

    In certain screens in FMS (i.e. screens where hitting "print" normally gives you options i.e. paper source, size etc as opposed to just going to the printer) getting an odd popup box asking to enter parameters. Just clicking "ok" prints it fine, but this is clearly an issue, especially if they do need to change something in the printing defaults.
    Anyone come across that?

    Found an easy and rather too obvious cure to the above today.

    FMS being programmed in a language older than myself isn't a fan of network printers with share names over 8 characters, thanks to it's 16bit roots.

    Annoyed with myself I didn't think of it before. Thinking about firing off an email to someone responsible to ask why exactly schools are being fobbed off with software of this age and standard :/
