SIMS & App-v
Can anybody point me in the right direction for sequencing SIMS.net with Appv? My versions are SIMS Spring 2011 and app-v 4.6 SP1 on Win 7 x86.
WHen I attempt to sequence the SIMS installed hangs at 'installing sims infrastructure.'
I've also heard some folders should be excluded?
Try installing just SIMSApplicationSetup.exe
I'm starting a project in the sequencer, pointing it to simsapplicationsetup.exe as the installer already. I can configure the paths, which I set as "q" wherever "c" drive is, click to install and that is as far as it goes, just sits there.
Did you get any further climo? Im having the exact same issue.
I've had a look at the exclusion list that we use when sequencing sims.
Note that we use an XP virtual machine with the .net framework preinstalled (a windows 7 vm may work, we've just been doing this for a while so it's our established procedure)
The exclusions that we use are s:\, c:\windows\Installer, c:\windows\Assembly.
Remember to change the installation path away from c: and change the shortcut to load sims to Pulsar.exe (simsload will not be able to update the sequenced package.
I can confirm that sequencing works when it is run on XP, we cannot make it work on windows 7. The sequenced packages do run on a win7 client regardless of being sequenced on XP.
Thanks to Paid_Peanuts for his assistance on this.
If you want to sequence on win7 you may have some luck running the indvidual MSIs rather than setup.exe.
