    FMS 6.82 download?

    Anyone know if there is a download of the 6.82 upgrade available? I hunted about on the capita site but couldnt see one.

    We used to get the updates on CD, but havent had one for a while now, our FMS is on a seperate server to our SIMS, so we cant update using SOLUS.

    Yeah, I think it was released at the same time as November.

    Yeah but thats in the SOLUS download, which we cant download on our FMS server, so I need a seperate download of 6.82.

    Oh right, yeah sorry didn't read properly. ops:

    Could you not download on the SOLUS server, but not install? Then copy the setup to the FMS server?

    There is a CD available to download.

    The link to download is:

    http://www.capitasolus.co.uk/CDImage/FMS682.zip

    This will download an iso image of an installable 6.82 FMS release.

    However - to unzip, you do need a password. You should request this password from your support unit - or if supported by Capita Bedford or Capita Cirencester, send an email to distribution@capita.co.uk

    Re: FMS 6.82 download?

    Actually, I foolishly forgot to say that the latest version of the SOLUS 2 wizard will allow you to download and upgrade FMS, without having SIMS!

    You should notice that there are now 2 login boxes on the front of the SOLUS 2 wizard, and if you have Level 5 permissions for FMS, you can enter your FMS Username and Password in the FMS login box - which will deploy and upgrade FMS.

    We have now completely separated SIMS from FMS in terms of the upgrade process.

    Also - you can automate the download of the FMS files (in the same way as the SIMS files).

    We will be releasing a new version of the SOLUS 2 Wizard (version 2.06) which will allow the deployment of SIMS Learning Gateway to both schools and Local Authorities.

    Re: FMS 6.82 download?

    I did download the solus2 on friday, but it refused to install on the FMS server, complaining that there was no SIMs install or SIMS SQL server present. Is there a newer version that fridays?

    (just checked, the one I downloaded on friday is 2.05, when I try and install that onto the FMS server the message I get is

    "The machine is currently not working as a SIMS workstation or a SIMS SQL server. Solus can only install on one or the other of the above."

    Then it exits out.

    I downloaded the zip above though, and thats worked perfectly

    A quick download is a lot easier for us FMS only places - just a pity the Capita support desk couldn't tell me about it when I rang last week, before I spent ages reading all the Solus documentation.

    Still worth knowing for the future.

    If you'd like to email me with details of the case that didn't get an answer I will be happy to follow it up to ensure that others do get the help they need.
