Here is the new date... hopefully
**** Revised date for Autumn 2012 Release *******
The SIMS 2012 Autumn release will now be released before COB on Friday the 16th of November, which will allow us to complete our Deployment and User Acceptance testing.
I apologise for any inconvenience that this delay might have caused you.

Well, it's out. Anyone feeling brave..?
Prizes for the first to report a fault :p
Building our Team's internal test VM's at the moment for thorougher testing before going live. :)

hmm, i am not seeing it in a few of my schools yet!
Not been released to Essex schools yet. Tho' I'm told that it's imminent. Think they wait for you all to test it out for us first!
7.148 build 33 is on and in test phase. no issues during install from CD. just whacking on FMS now.
let me know if there's anything i can test specifically for anyone.
Add Data Review Columns
Select All Aspects
-> "Cannot select more than 225 columns in the template"
What do i need to do, tick a box or run a patch... convert my templates...?
Not getting any new medical notes functionality either. There's a new built-in report that shows the notes, but i could do that before. No more linking seems to be there to actually tie the note to the condition / event it was entered against.
ran it last night and had to manually run all the client upgrades as it wasnt triggered in the usual way.
LEA has said its permissions which are the problem even though nothing has changed on our system since the last release.
ideas or suggestions?
as i dont want to have to manually do it on 40+ workstations again lol
How do you mean manually? Running SIMSInst to install SIMS, or just running SIMS in the normal way but as an admin account?
What is the shortcut that the user runs pointing to? Is it SIMSLoad.exe then it should have pulsar as a parameter. Updates wouldn't take place if for some reason, the shortcut just points to Pulsar.exe.
On Windows 7, if you click Start / Windows Circle (whatever it's called) and type SIMS, it doesn't always give the correct link, and a lot of my users had pinned pulsar to the start menu, which was fine until an update.
If it is permissions, check the simsperm.bat file for an idea of what permissions they need. Often permissions over the local drive are missing, especially prog files and temp, but it depends when it last worked on your network and what changes have happened in between...
Very Minor issue:
Schoolcomms will be removed from the SIMS Focus menu and Student Details screens on the 1st January 2013
It's only a problem if you're on Autumn and need to access via the Focus menu. You can just run it from the desktop icon / start menu and it will be fine, or just use the web interface.
