    sorry localzuk, have you tried to call them lately to get a quick answer, I called them last week prior to posting on here, I have had one call back to say they are sending a 6.80 CD out to allow me to install it, however the 6.80 CD is a base realease that can be upgraded from 6.78 and 6.79. Their helpdesk has gone right down the swanny of late.

    Re: FMS Install

    I’m trying to do the same thing as Craig_W in that I have a clean machine and want to install FMS and Sims .net. I have the 6.78 install CD but I keep getting the error “There was a problem trying to execute the config32.exe”.

    I can’t see where I’m going wrong.

    Re: FMS Install

    I never got anywhere with this. It sat on the back burner for a while as the machines that I was putting it on didn't need it at that time, but they do now, so I need to figure this now too!

    Re: FMS Install

    The original error message posted by craig is quite a common one from what I've seen, it's normally been down to the default printer on that machine not been available or offline, if they are using a network printer make sure it is turned on and available for the user/machine.

    Hope this helps

    Re: FMS Install

    I’ve sorted it. The error was because I didn’t select the box to copy the Sims application software.

    I know this is an old post but THANKYOU!
    That error was doing my head in, and sure enough the problem was a printer was being mapped that didnt exist anymore
    But I would have never known to look there otherwise

    Random question about FMS - want to know if its just our disc. When I install 6.78 from the Spring 2005 CD, it all goes OK until I try to start it and get an application error from FMSLOAD.exe when it tries to update. Only way I found to get round it was to copy FMSLOAD from another machine that had been updated. The new machine then updated fine

    I have had similar problems with FMS and all I could do was do the install from CD (which failed to work after updating) Then copy all files in /program files/SIMS/FMS to the new machine from a known updated working machine. Not an ellegant fix, but it works.

    I have a 6.78 installation CD - so you still need a copy?
