STORET logo SIM version 2.0.2 Patch 01 (update to build 4.3

**This patch can only be run on SIM 2.0.2**

A few users discovered some additional issues with the initial SIM 2.0.2 release of May 2006. While none of these issues were major, they did cause the software to perform in some unexpected ways under certain conditions. This patch is meant to address a number of those issues.

This fix resolves the following issues:
  1. SIM was only allowing 999 total visits on any trip. Once this fix is applied, SIM will allow 999 visits to each Station on a trip. This is more in line with the STORET business rule.

  2. SIM was failing when using the Generate option for Medium on imports where the Activity Category was either "Routine Habitat Assessment" or "Replicate Habitat Assessment".

  3. SIM would log an error when migrating Projects to STORET stating "One or more projects in your migration cannot be found in STORET". Although the data would still migrate successfully, this message was being generated in error.

  4. SIM was incorrectly handling the import for Single Taxon Frequency Class Results. In some cases it was placing the Subject Taxon data into the Common Class field.

  5. SIM had a restriction that prevented a migration from being deleted if any of the data in STORET had been modified after being migrated to STORET. There was flaw in how this was determined. This bug has been fixed and the restriction has been lifted.

In SIM, from the menu choose 'Advanced'. Within this menu there is an option called: 'System Settings'. Select 'System Settings'. In the form that pops up, there is a row called '*BUILD_NUMBER'. If the 'Value' of this row states: 'SIM202 Build Number 4.3', then you DO NOT need to run this patch. If it says 'SIM202 Build Number 4', then you DO need to run this patch.
