    Yep, works for me.

    Not sure about Nova T though as I never use it.

    Yes it does work, but of course the older 16Bit parts do not work.

    FMS works too, but I find both still work best on 32Bit.

    Cool thanks that's good for most users. I'll assume that Options and Nova modules need 32bit then?

    Also, be careful about personnel links between SIMS and FMS if you have a mixed 32/64-bit environment. You have to specify the path to the SIMS .net folder which is a single, estate-wide option. If it's set to C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net like it will be on all of your 32-bit workstations, FMS will complain about not finding it on the 64-bit devices if you've installed SIMS and FMS to the Program Files (x86) folder.

    Nova T6 and Options work fine - just make sure the borland database engine (32bit) is installed.

    Also we have found significant issues with the 64bit version of Microsoft Office and SIMS, and advise schools only to use 32bit Office

    Not even Microsoft recommend you use 64bit Office!

    Yer, everything works but Nova-T4, which ain't supported anyway! Actually not sure about Nova-P, hey, what do you know, it does work on win7 64bit!!

    Good call. You can fix this with symbolic links.
