    All you need for a SIMS workstation is:
    [Setup]
    SIMSDirectory=S:\SIMS
    SIMSSetupsDirectory=\\server\network\SIMS\Setups

    If you want the start menu folder to be something different then use:
    Folder=Sims Applications

    I wouldn't recommend setting the SIMS Application directory either unless you're mixing 32bit and 64bit for FMS
    SIMSDotNetDirectory=C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net
    well copying an entire one no but all i need working is enough of sime to fill a register the rest can take a flying leap and at least it gives you some idea

    Normally find it's because we turn offline files off on the SIMS share. Which is a good thing as you don't end up with cached copies of protected documents laying around on your local machine.

    Indeed it is, as I don't have SIMS.net on my machine - no need. The setup is the standard one done by our LEA.
