SIMS.net & TS
We have been using our Terminal Server for nearly a year now with no complaints - but our exams officer now wants to use it.
SIMS still loads up fine using her account, but when clicking to open the Examinations part it get a Incorrect .ini error.
Tried this logging on as my account and get the same thing. Looked at GPo for TS and there's hardly no security in place and I can't see why it's being blocked.
Logged on the the local admin user (of the TS) the Examinations bit works as expected. So I tried adding my account to the local admins but still nothing.
Any help please?!
Does your SIMS.net work on your TS? If so, were there any special steps you needed to take to get it to work?

Our Server 2008 TS is fine with sims.
What happens if you physically to the server and logon interactively, does it work then?

WIll sound starnge but have you tried to install the client directly to a machine and then looked at what happens.
What version of examinations are you using and what version of SIMS .net

SIMS.net loads fine but when clicking to load the Examinations app the ini error is:
Incorrect Connect.ini file : SIMS.Processes.Exception
More details doesn't give much information (that I can understand) and it isn't listed as to which ini file.
The account can obviously access S:\SIM\connect.ini as the initial SIMS.net screen loads fine.
Just to reiterate - this works fine for the local admin account.

The client works fine on our CC3 and admin machines, with the user accounts in question. I have also tried a full uninstall and reinstall of SIMS on the TS.

What's the contents of that connect.ini? I'm wondering if its redirecting to a path which the non-admin account can't access.

P.S. The user accounts in question work fine on other machines and they connect using the same connect.ini so I'm thinking problem with TS somewhere.

Not the SIMS server connect.ini the one on your TS server this should be located in c:\program files\sims .net\ I think. It should point at the connect.ini on your SIMS server.
