STORET logo SIM version 2.0.2 Patch 02 (update to Build 8)

**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 patch will update your SIM 2.0.2 software to the latest version (Build 8). It must be installed onto a machine that currently has SIM 2.0.2 installed. Patch 02 includes fixes for the issues resolved by Patch 01, so you don't have to apply Patch 01 before applying Patch 02. For a list of all issues resolved by Patch 02 and Patch 01, please refer to the "README" file and Installation Instructions contained within the Patch download.

Quit Without Downloading File

This download is in the form of a compressed, self-extracting 3.8 MB file, named "SIM202-Patch02_Install.exe". The patch software can be run like any other software installation. You should place it in a temporary folder, and double-click it to allow it to expand.

Included in the self-extracting file are:

  • A "README" file
  • The Patch Installation Software, "SIM202_Patch02.exe"
  • Patch 02 Full Installation Instructions
  • Patch 02 Server Installation

We advise you to examine the "README" file. If you are running STORET as a stand-alone installation you will run the patch to update the SIM Database and the SIM Software (User Interface). If you are running STORET in a client-server installation, then the patch software will only update the SIM Software (User Interface) and you will need to have your DBA update your SIM Database separately using the Patch 02 Server Scripts.

How do I tell if I need to run this patch?

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 8', then you DO NOT need to run this patch. If it says 'SIM202 Build Number 4, 4.3 or 7', then you DO need to run this patch.
