    Looking at the state of Vista, the level of it's deployment in schools and the likes of RM CC4, I'd be fairly happy in suggesting Windows 7 will be commonplace in schools before Vista.

    Yh i personally think, most schools will skip vista and go straight to windows 7

    looking at windows 7 now.. its looking good for m$ again we can only wait and see when the final release comes out.

    I had the same problem when testing it out, but so far im impressed with the fact it runs rather well on a 1.4Ghz Willamette

    The way things are moving in our school its quite likely we will skip the Vista route and go down the W7 route!

    That's microsoft plan

    Windows 2000 > Vista
    Windows XP > Windows 7

    Both using the same Kernal, which should make it easier for apps devs

    What are you doing to get that error?

    I've been getting other errors... "Attempted to read or write Protected Memory" is the main one...


    I found that Windows 7 permissions don't like me either...

    In my case, all I had to do to get that error was attempt to run Sims. It'd say some error about unable to open homepage and then dump that on screen. Running it in compatibility mode didn't help either.

    Wonder if he'll port Delphi 5 to Windows 7 or if he'll total rewrite FMS from scratch?

    It might work properly if he rewrites it

    Exactly what I was getting - just after you login...
    Tried SIMSPERM, Compatibility Mode (XP & Vista) - no joy...
    Got all version of .NET installed - still not solved..

    It seems to be trying to use something thats just not there anymore..

    It seems to be working fine on mine. I had issues with it not seeing S: drives (used full UNC paths instead) and once it was installed, it couldn't sort out the connect.ini file. But once I created it by hand, I've been able to log in and use it as I normally do.

    But then, I am a mere noob when it comes to SIMS usage. Getting our office staff to use it would be a better test.

    I dare you to install it on a live system and have users actually use it.
