SIMS server migration, serious problems! (64 bit / 32 bit errors)
Am currently desperately trying to get sims 7.132 migrated on to a new server. I have very little experience with sims and sql but have completed a few succesful installs.
The old server was 2003 r2 32bit, sql was on 2008.
New server is 2008 r2 64bit, and I'm attempting to install sims from the Autumn main 09 files but I don't know if this is sql 32 or 64 bit.
The install goes ok until it runs sqlapplicationssetups, or applicationssetups, at which point I get the standard error saying the program is not for this platform, check whether it's 64 or 32 bit, etc. This happens when attempting to run the programs manually and not from simsinst.
I have reimaged the server with 2008 32 bit, and 2008 64 bit, and done a fresh install on 2008 64 bit, exact same issue each time.
Funny thing is that a couple of times it seemed to complete some of the installs that are erroring out but when I attached the schools db, after that they no longer worked and I got the error. I'm a little bit hazy on this last paragraph as there was a lot of installs and uninstalls going on but that is what I'm pretty sure I remember.
Any help much appreciated.
