You must have Oracle version 8i (8.1.7)® (or higher for client/server install)
and STORET Reports version 2.0.0 or higher installed before you can install
SIM version 2.0.2. The STORET Import Module (SIM) version 2.0.2 will
completely replace your existing copy of SIM (if present). During the
installation in the stand-alone environment, you will be offered the choice
of preserving information you might already have in the form of SIM
"Configurations". Existing configurations will be erased if you select "no".
Steps you should follow (in this order) to use SIM Version 2.0.2:
- Back-up any SIM Configurations that you want to save - see SIM v2.0.2
- Install STORET Reports v2.0.0 if you have not previously done so - see
STORET v2.0.0 Installation Guide
- Stand alone users only - Install Personal Oracle v8.1.7 if you have
not previously done so - see STORET v2.0.0 Installation Guide
- Install STORET Data Entry Module v2.0.0 if you have not previously
done so - see STORET v2.0.0 Installation Guide
- Uninstall any previous versions of SIM
- Install SIM v2.0.2 - see SIM v2.0.2 Installation Guide
Note: For server installations, your Oracle DBA can use the
scripts that are available in the downloaded file to install SIM v2.0.2
on the server.
- If necessary, install the Oracle Forms Runtime Patch. You can
get more information regarding this patch as well as download the patch
itself at the following web page:
Included in this update are
- A "README" file
- The Installation Software, "SIM202_Setup.exe"
- SIM Full Installation Instructions
- SIM Server Installation
This download is in the form of a compressed, self-extracting
7.7 MB file, named "SIM202_Install.exe". You should place it in a temporary
folder, and double-click it to allow it to expand.
In its extracted form, it will consist of several files.
We advise you to examine the README file, and to print and read the Installation Guide.
This process is fully automated and requires little input from
you as it proceeds.
You should identify the file named "SIM202_Setup.exe" and
run it. It will ask you if you want the software only install, the
full installation, or the client/server DBA scripts.
You should select the "full" installation, provided your
installation of the STORET is the stand-alone PC version using
Personal Oracle version 8.1.7®.
If you are running the client/server form of STORET, you must choose the
software only install. The rest of this upgrade must be performed
by your Oracle Data Base Administrator (DBA). He or she can extract the
scripts needed for database modifications required by SIM from the zip
Installation of this software takes only a few minutes. The database changes
which accompany it on the full (stand alone) install (or when performed
by a DBA) take thirty to sixty minutes.
