Sims installation issue on server
We have recently purchased Sims but have decided to move the sims database onto a new server. the new server i have purchased has the following specs:
HP DL360 G6
quad xeon 2.0Ghz
24 Gb RAM
2 - 146Gb 10k hard drives configured as Raid 1
I have installed Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2005 64-bit. I have tried running the simsinst.exe file to install all sims components on this new server before i attach the database and it is failing to install the SQL 2000 desktop engine. has anyone else experienced this issue on a 64-bit and how did they get around it?
Any help much appreciated

Do you need to install the SQL2000 desktop engine? There's a 2005 SQL installer in my setups folder which I've just used to setup a test server on a virtual machine, never touched the 2000 installer at all.
My knowledge of SIMS isn't great though so could be wrong (only started using it a few months ago so just picking bit's up as I need them)

Avalon, you SIMS setups directory is out of date, if you can wait until the 5th of Nov, when Autumn (installable) release SHOULD be out, you can install SIMS onto SQL 2008, otherwise you'll need a new clean up-to-date setups directory.
