    As it stands SIMS.net doesn't support 2008 R2 or SQL 2008 R2. There are reports that the prior works somewhat, but it is unofficial. SQL 2008 R2 is reported to have some issues, so the current stance is to use 2008 Server and SQL 2008.

    FMS is the same with SIMS.net

    64bit is supported for servers now, but only 32bit for clients.

    Until later in the month... then it's 64bit all round (minus Nova-T4 etc).

    SQL Server 2008 R2 is not supported by Serco for the Facility Products. SQL 2008 is the newest it supports.

    COB 19th november = autumn update and server R2 is supported - see excerpt from release notes Help please with FMS SQL2008 Migration So it will only be SQL R2 that isn't supported.

    That excerpt you linked to seems to indicate that 64bit clients will be supported. Obviously with the caveat of the older unsupported stuff being 16bit/32bit only.
