Installing Sims on new server. shared directory should point at ???
When installing Sims on a new server (2008r2) I run siminst.exe and at the bottom of the first page is a settings link. When I click this it opens a settings page, with items like - location of DocStorage.
Under the Workstation heading is 'Install SIMS application in the shared directory' section which points to S:\SIMS, is this correct? as I get a Sims install was unable to write to the SIMS application in the shared directory error.
I have all the permissions set the same as the old server.

I think so. are you running as admin?
I think those are the settings that end up in the sims.ini..:
SIMSDotNetDirectory=C:\Program Files (x86)\SIMS\SIMS .net
SIMSSQLAppsDirectory=C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.SIMS2008\MSSQL\Binn
FinanceDirectory=C:\Program Files (x86)\SIMS\FMSSQL

If you are installing on a server you need local paths not shared paths. Presumably you want to run SIMS on the server occasionally.
Shared paths would be on the workstations.

Do you have the latest setup files?
I would use the ISO to do the install.
I just ran SIMSinst on my server and ticked install as server and workstation, there is no settings button. The first two options request sims directory and sims setups which are S:\sims and s:\sims\setups .
Next it asks for workstation application install, and it has this by default:
C:\Program Files (x86)\SIMS\SIMS .net

Which version are you using. V1.21 has a "Settings" button.

File version is 1.590.3.0 - but it is old, just thinking, i did my install using the Spring 2010 install ISO! Don't know if the later upgrade to Spring 11 will have updated it.

Just found a 1.570. It doesn't have a 'Settings' button.
