i have pm you mine
having one or two issues with our connect.ini file at the minute, mainly that we get the following error at startup:
The SIMS.ini file cannot be located or is incomplete which means this system cannot be automatically updated.
Please contact your local support team for assistance.
I have tried playing with the [setups] section on both the server connect.ini and client connect.ini to no avail. Is anyone willing to share a working connect.ini (both from workstation and server) to help us work out where we are going wrong.
i have pm you mine
Only the first few lines of the server connect.ini are required, the timeout bits have been added to ours after issues.Code:[SIMSConnection] ServerName=Prep-admin1\MIS2008 DatabaseName=SIMS CommandTimeOut = 288000 [Reports] Timeout=1000000
Do you mean the connect.ini or the sims.ini, the connect.ini on my network only have a few lines in it
the sims.ini has what seems all the setup and directory info in it
ah reading the error you may need the sims.ini -
Code:[Setup] SIMSSetupsDirectory=\\prep-admin1\capita$\SIMS\Setups SIMSDotNetDirectory=C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net SIMSDirectory=S:\SIMS SIMS Directory=C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net FinanceDirectory=C:\Program Files\SIMS\Finance OfflineSQLAppsDirectory= SIMSSQLAppsDirectory= Folder=SIMS Applications WorkStation=5.28 NeedIcons=FALSE [LastChecked] SIMSInfrastructureSetup=5.590.5.0 [InstallationLogs] SIMSApplicationSetup.exe=C:\Users\user1\AppData\Local\Temp\SIMSApplicationSetup.log [BDE] BDEVersion=2.52 BDEPath=C:\IDAPI BDEConfigPath=C:\IDAPI\IDAPI.CFG [Fonts] SIMS Attendance Key 8pt (VGA res)=SIMSATT.FON SIMS Monospaced 6,8pt (VGA res)=SIMSMONO.FON SIMS Field Navigator 8pt (VGA res)=SIMSFNAV.FON SIMS Clear 'a' font 8,10,12,14,18,24pt (VGA res)=SIMSCLRA.FON [NOVA-MC] CurrAcadYear=2010 PulsarLocation=C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net CurrentTip=1 RecentFile:0=I:\RC SIMS data.SPL RecentFile:1= RecentFile:2= RecentFile:3= RecentFile:4= RecentFile:5= RecentFile:6= RecentFile:7= LoadAcadYear=2011 LastFile=I:\RC SIMS data.SPL
I get this error everytime I use SOLUS3 to deploy SIMS. The user can click "ok" on the error and is still able to login but its a right pain.
I've usually come across this error message on Windows 7 when UAC is still on. During installation SIMS is unable to update the SIMS.ini file after it's initial creation. Therefore it contains some info, but not everything it needs and then SIMS fails to run correctly.
@CyBeRkId2002 & @fiza ; could you post a copy of the SIMS.ini from a machine that's not working?
I had this on Windows 7 64bit when I took my usual route of deploying Infrastructure, App, AMPARK and Manual separately.
Once I ran simsinst.exe it worked ok.

Check the SIMS ini file which is in the windows folder on the workstation. As others have already said it looks as if there is an error in your simssetupdirectory line. Mine reads SIMSSetupsDirectory=\\[SIMSServerName]\[SimsShareName]\sims\setups. This won't stop SIMS running but it will stop it updating automatically
