    Lovely release. Liking the new reports, wishing for a timetable template so we can kill Nova-T4. The direct debt feature in FMS should keep the Finance people happy.

    PS: Should you really be posting the links to the files?

    It's been done before, but usually after a request from a member. In fact this is the first time i've noticed Capita advertise them, usually it's in a KB article somewhere if at all, unless requested.

    Also, there is a no password access Capita site where you can download the files, in addition to many LA mirrors, so it's not exactly hidden.

    It's only upgrade files, what can you do with it? I can pull it if you think it's dangerous or illegal...

    Just questioning it, I mean if you stop paying Capita, you could still grab those ISOs and continue upgrading. Anyway, Phil's not moan so I guess it's ok

    Cheers, ah yes, as I was reading that, I remembered Jon saying it now

    can anyone advise the process you will take to run this update on sims? We moved from Integris to Sims last October. Every update i have had to run on sims has been problematic.

    thanks in advance

    Until something goes wrong and you need to call techsupport!!! Then you're up a creek. But, point taken.

    Rule #1: Take a backup beforehand.



    Can you elaborate slightly on what problems you have encountered?

    @Avalon - my advice is always to test. the best way to do this is set up a virtual machine.
    true many past upgrades were plagued with problems, but the recent ones have been very straight forward. (at least for me)

    Your issues are most likely caused by data discrepancies between the old system and SIMS. If you can set up a virtual test system, you can hopefully iron out these issues before you upgrade your live system.

    Search in this forum for how to set this up if you're not sure. which reminds me, Bossman, asked me for some guidelines so he can do this too and i haven't dug them out yet. If you need help let me know, or post in one of the relevant threads, just bear in mind Spring Break starts tomorrow!

    basically we get an 'incompatible database' message on the client machines after running the the update on solus on the server.

    the client does not seem to attempt to run simsload.exe but cannot see why, permissions to the whole of the program files\sims folder seem fine

    any ideas?

    Look at the shortcut that fires up Sims - does it call simsload.exe and pulsar.exe or just pulsar.exe?

    It should be
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net\SIMSLoad.exe" "C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net\Pulsar.exe"
