    SIMS & App-v

    Can anybody point me in the right direction for sequencing SIMS.net with Appv? My versions are SIMS Spring 2011 and app-v 4.6 SP1 on Win 7 x86.
    WHen I attempt to sequence the SIMS installed hangs at 'installing sims infrastructure.'
    I've also heard some folders should be excluded?

    I'm starting a project in the sequencer, pointing it to simsapplicationsetup.exe as the installer already. I can configure the paths, which I set as "q" wherever "c" drive is, click to install and that is as far as it goes, just sits there.

    Hi guys,

    I've had a look at the exclusion list that we use when sequencing sims.

    Note that we use an XP virtual machine with the .net framework preinstalled (a windows 7 vm may work, we've just been doing this for a while so it's our established procedure)

    The exclusions that we use are s:\, c:\windows\Installer, c:\windows\Assembly.

    Remember to change the installation path away from c: and change the shortcut to load sims to Pulsar.exe (simsload will not be able to update the sequenced package.

    Matt

    Hi,

    I can confirm that sequencing works when it is run on XP, we cannot make it work on windows 7. The sequenced packages do run on a win7 client regardless of being sequenced on XP.
    Thanks to Paid_Peanuts for his assistance on this.
    If you want to sequence on win7 you may have some luck running the indvidual MSIs rather than setup.exe.
