SIMS (7.114) running on Win 7 x64
System Manager deosn't run though
FMSVistaFix not running either - prob cos its x64
Gonna try it on x86 Win7
There was reference earlier to it working fine in x64 Win7
Last time i Installed 7.112 on x86 Win7
this time its v7.114 on x64 Win7 so need to try it on x86 to see
FMS has had probs since Vista came out - hence the FMSVistaFix001 app - which basiclly copies 3 dll files to the System32 dir - this also allows system manager to run in Vista/Win7 - so im guesssing the fix should work on x86 win7 if SIMS does..
FMS does work on x64. It's a 32bit application, so it should run.
Not got round to FMS yet, still making sure SIMS works ok...
No issues here. Running Sims and Windows 7 *64 beta nicely.
But then again I do IT for a living - that said installing Sims was a walk in the park!
Can't see the point of wasting time with Windows 7 and SIMS. I mean Capita won't support it and no professional would install Windows 7 (beta) in a production network. Even after it's release you've still got to wait till Capita supports it.
If you want to do it as far as testing, then I'll be waiting till Capita asks for testers.
The point is to find out what will and will not work - hence "beta testing"...
IIRC, didn't Capita start supporting Vista pretty quickly?
Capita tent to sneaky with features, windows 7 support will be added to something like March, but they won't tell anyone (officially). It won't be official support till Windows 7 is out and they've properly tested it (this includes schools using it on a live system).
The fact everything is beta, features will come and go. The next release it could be broken, then you've just wasted your time testing it. Fine, Windows 7 is BETA, not ALPHA.
At the end of the day you can't go into the source-code and amend it, you can move some dlls etc around, so your just wasting time moaning at Capita about how it doesn't work.
Don't get me wrong, you should be looking at Windows 7, but the Microsoft features, both administration and how this is going to affect the end user, is it good value for money ( unless you fancy waiting for Becta to tell you )
Far as SIMS and Windows 7 is concern, Capita will say it's supported, you'll install it as normal, it'll work. I can't see it being long wait as it's basically the vista kernel with some tweaks.
Just in case you've not seen the other thread, this is fixed in builds greater than 7048.
I'm running 7057 32bit here and Sims works like a charm :P
