The Frog SIMS extractor is a utility that a school will install either on their SIMS server or any machine that has the SIMS client installed on it. It allows you to extract data from SIMS and send that data to your Frogserver for import.
The current version of the Frog SIMS extractor is 3.8.8 and has been designed to work with SIMS version 7.186 and above. Please note that if your SIMS version changes (due to an upgrade for example) you may need to update the SIMS extractor - please check with our Frog Service Desk Team if you are unsure.
The following minimum specifications are required to run this application:
- Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 (at the time of writing this document 09/04/2019)
*IMPORTANT NOTE – If you are setting up the extractor to run for the first time (not installing over an existing FrogLearn SIMS extractor) then please ensure you have spoken to the Support Desk about Username Formats before going ahead with running the extractor.*
