SIMs May upgrade and Net Framework 2.0
Did you know that the new SIMs upgrade requires Net Framework 2.0 to run after it upgrades. This caught us out today with a handful of staff laptops. We did the upgrade on the server and then tested a couple of laptops to make sure the Sims.net upgrade went OK. THis is when we found out some of our laptops did not upgrade right. The upgrade seem to work but then we go the XP error beep and no log in box. We tried this both as a limited user and a full admin and still no joy.
The only thing was we noticed some of our laptops whose RIS image had not been updated for a while did not have Dot.Net 2.0 > I checked Capita fourms and someone else had posted about it to confirm what we thought.
I did not realise the WSUS did not deploy the Net 2.0 but only the service packs. I had to set up a GPO to deploy Net 2.0 in the morning and hopefully this will be picked up on first login and stop Sims from not working after the upgrade.....if not the phone is going to be busy first thing.
I can't find any info on Capitas site about this , but i thought that we would have had some heads up on this but maybe i missed it.
Hope this helps some of you.
