    I guess we are licensed as it works under my admin account. I've checked the permissions and the teachers have timetabler rights.
    I don't get why it needs a login, I thought all sims used SQL rights now?

    Only Timetabler has Timetable/Options Permissions by default!
    Why on earth would Teachers have Timetable Permissions? Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me!

    I had this problem and fixed it by giving the Options admin person full control of the Options folder within SIMS

    Check that the users have permissions to access all areas of sims mapped drive, including read/write in the options/timetable related nova folders, also similar any local sims folder. if you as admin can run it, it points to a permissions error.

    it is old so doesn't rely on username and password from sql, most people don't set one for this module, but you can if you want.

    i'm assuming you have a password.dat file in your S:\sims\options folder, [replace S with your mapped drive] if so, they maybe just can't read it..

    EDIT: or in short what Hecate said

    Thank you!!!

    Finally fixed it with this.

    I can't believe capita still needs us to change file permissions and use custom password files in the year 2010 :/

    You still have NOVA-T4, NOVA-P and Exams Organiser lurking round the corner with their Windows 3.1 interfaces.

    I've got this problem again on a new laptop. Getting "Unable to retrieve 9 implementations" when I load Options.

    Its a new windows 7 laptop and the user has permissions to the options folder on the shared drive. Is there anything else I need to do?

    Funnily enough had that exact thing last week! We had to install BDE (Borlands database engine) for it to work, after that's installed it worked fine on ours.

    Might be worth a try.

    Just installing "SimsInfrastructureSetup" should install the necessary parts. It will flake out on the 16bit crap if you're on a 64bit system but will still work.
