    Try control panel > regional and language settings and make sure everything is set to UK. This should set the short date setting for the laptop.

    I have a vague memory of this happening years ago, on XP.

    Is there 2 ways of changing short date? Sorry, memory a bit senior.

    Hi

    I am reliably informed by our SIMS team at DMBC that at present SIMS will not work with Windows 7. If you check the date setting, you will find it is correct. Capita are working on a fix.

    From SupportNet:

    Operating System (32 bit only) —Microsoft® Windows XP Pro (SP2 and above) and Microsoft Windows Vista Business
    (SP2). From Spring 2010 we will be supporting Windows 7.

    If you are on 7.128 it should work & be supported.

    Just found an old edugeek post.

    Try setting short date/date time to something else, save then set back to setting required.


    EDIT: Short Date format

    What he said above...!

    We have this issue, 'tis most bizarre. Change the time zone to something else, then change it back to London; it will then allow you to install.

    I get this and this is my workaround

    Open the Region and Language Control Panel
    Confirm all tabs are set for the UK..
    On the "Formats" Tab click "Additional Settings..."
    On the "Numbers" tab in the new Dialog, click "Reset"
    Click Yes to confirm, then OK twice
    Now try SIMS Install again..
