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.

I checked all the settings in regional and language section and it all says what it should be (dd/MM/yyy) but keeps telling me is not ARHHHHHHHHHHHH.

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.

we're running sims and FMS on win 7 wihtout any known issues other than FMS needing a default printer.

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 have Sims running fine on Windows 7 x64 can't say about fms as i don't use it

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..
