Ok - let me be more specific:
Hurrah for me as I have only released the upgrade to 1 school, not 240+, and now I don't have to face a series of support issues regarding the Assessment issue that for me does seem to be a rather important issue as I have a large number of schools using Assessment Manager.
Not hurrah for those of you in the same position as you.
Agreed a withdrawal is a bit extreme (and a major issue for those schools who have already begun deployment), but for my reasons I stand by my 'hurrah', for me at least.
I shall continue to sit Jedi-like, in calm contemplation whilst all around me upgrades, withdrawals, patches and bugs swirl.
"Upgrade I will, when you bugs you have fixed, Hmm!"
I would like to publicly thank Phil Neal and the Support Team at Bedford for the excellent support that we have been given in getting SOLUS3 working to deploy the re-issued Spring Release.
All being well, deploying the updated release once it is available will now, hopefully, be seemless!
I must add that most of our problems were caused, not by withdrawing the original release (inconvenient though it was!), but by a failure on our part to follow though with SOLUS3 for the past few upgrades.
Sorry to go off subject, but does anyone know the password to the spring 2011 sims upgrade iso? or could someone email me the release notes. It's just that I have found out that I can't access SupportNet for KB108477. Thanks in advance for your help.
No, it's a year old. Look for the 2012 version.
One would hope that users would have the sense not to post such Passwords anyway!
They should not be available on a public website!
Legitimate users can get them from SupportNet or directly from Capita Support!
Where/How do i down load discover ??
had to phone them up in the end.. as there support team did not know where it was ..
but some one found it and email me a link to it..
It's not in setups. SupportNet is the place to go. The resource linked in the first post, should have all the info you need. The upgrade iso should also do a clean install for you.
Could anyone post the full version numbers of the SIMS and FMS exes?
