For Non-Hosted Schools upgrading your own data the SIMS & FMS upgrade will be released via SOLUS3 on Friday 22nd July between 3 and 4pm. UPDATE 19/07/22 ESS previously stated that from the Autumn 2022 upgrade computers that run SIMS will need to have at least Microsoft .NET 4.7.2 installed or SIMS will not work. ESS have confirmed that this has been pulled forward to the Summer upgrade so SIMS will NOT run unless the above framework is installed before or after the upgrade on each workstation.
