    Re: Intermittant error when user logs into SIMS

    Can't find the exact error on support net, but similar errors recommend:

    Re-install sims on workstation (i just delete the sims folder and re-run setup)

    Reboot workstation and or server

    Re-create user via system manager

    Otherwise it looks like something more specific to your data.

    Re: Intermittant error when user logs into SIMS

    We have a similar error here. When affected users use another workstation, there is no error. When unaffected users use the affected user's workstation, there is no error.

    We are testing a fix based on a hunch...

    Re: Intermittant error when user logs into SIMS

    We saw similar patterns after a recent SIMS upgrade. We solved it by changing an entry in C:\WINDOWS\Sims.ini

    Change it from:

    [Setup]
    SIMSSetupsDirectory=\\SIMSServerName\simsroot$\sim s\Setups

    To:

    [Setup]
    SIMSSetupsDirectory=S:\sims\Setups

    (Where S:\ is your SIMS drive: Change as appropriate)

    The rest of the file is unchanged.

    Re: Intermittant error when user logs into SIMS

    I've recently recieved errors like this on some stations after an upgrade. Running SIMSApplicationSetup from the setups folder accepting all defaults seemed to fix this.

    On further investigation this station hadn't been setup correctly. There was no s:\sims in the environment variables.
