    don't forget thar exams is not yet a .net module. What happens for example when you try to run system manager on the terminal server

    Just did this. Worked fine as local admin again, logged on as a different user to try it and exactly the same error.

    What are the rights on that file? Anything set up on your TS to restrict users from seeing the C drive?

    They used to be restricted but for the purpose of trying to fix this I've unrestricted it now so users (everyone) can read/write/modify the C:\ drive including the SIMS folder and any files.

    Okay, could you try renaming the SIMS .net folder to something else (.old, anything'll do) and then re-running SIMSApplicationSetup.exe from your S drive?

    I've already tried that - those were the instructions given by Capita when clicking on the "find resolution" in the error box. Didn't change it.

    I think it's something that never gets used therefore we've never noticed the problem before - but since our Exams officer needs to do work on it from home we noticed the problem.

    Good to know it's not just our setup and it's something a little more "normal" in a sense.

    another thing to consider is that you will need access to 2 different areas. The exe files for Exams etc are normally located on the sims drive with the .net client files located in the C:\programs files\sism\sims .net

    For a user to run one of the non .net modules they will need to have access to both area's.

    Ideally could you let us see the contents of the SIms.ini (normally found in C:\windows and the connect.ini on the network drive

    Right this is awkward. Firstly because it's TS there are slightly different considerations. From what our Support Team has said all V6 programs I.E. Assessment, Attendance, Exams won't work for any user on TS other than the one who installed it. A way round it is to install Sims Apps seperately for each user who needs the V6 tools. so within c:\program files\sims\ you would create a folder <username> then install sims apps to that using that specific users account (may need power user or even admin rights for this) have an icon for that specific SIMS install for that user on the desktop/start menu named something like TS SIMS .Net this should then work fine.

    Or, I can create a shared account and install SIMS as normal with that account and give anyone who needs access to v6 stuff those account details. Going to try that and will report back.
