Cannot install Document Server on Server 2008
I'm moving my SIMS server across to a shiny install of Server 2008 and SQL 2008. The migration has gone fine from what I can tell but I now need to move the Document Server.
As I understand it, I should just need to run SIMSINST, pick the Document Server bit and sit back. However, it keeps failing with a message that I must have .net v1.1 to install the Document Server.
Obviously, .net v2 was bundled with Server 2008 and I have every version since then installed. There is no way to install .net v1.1 on Server 2008 AFAIK.

Why can't you install on 2008?
It's in the list of supported OSs.

SimsInfrastructureSetup.exe should install everything you need..... from memory. It's a long time since I set up a new machine.

How rubbish it still needs 1.1 to work

You can install .net framework 1.1 from dotnetfx.exe in the ?:\sims\setups folder.

even thought you have v2 of dot net it sill requires the 1.1 version also kinda daft as you would expect v2 to overwrite v1 but it does not

I think everyone wanted/expected that the latest versions of .net would backwardly work for apps... but no... thanks Microsh!te

Most .Net install are separate from each other. .Net 4 will be needed soon (for Discover) but won't replace earlier versions.

SIMS .net is moving over to .NET 4.0 in Spring.
.NET Framework 1.1 shouldn't be needed (pretty sure).
At a guess your SIMSINST is out of date and your trying to install the old version, try running SIMSDocumentServerInstaller.exe /INSTALL manually to see if that works.
