How can I open a newly-installed database in a multiuser version of SimaPro (or create a new Alias)?

To make a SimaPro database available to users of a multiuser license, the SimaPro admin should carry out the following steps.  Please note that a pre-requisite is that the SimaPro database is saved in a location that is accessible by all relevant users.


  • Find the program SimaPro Database Server and right-click to run as administrator
  • Go to Aliases
  • Enter a name for this Alias and the path (which is the location where the database is saved); click Add. 
  • Now go to your SimaPro client software
  • Select File> Open SimaPro database
  • Select the server and then for the location, select the Alias you had just defined
  • The new database should then appear - select Open and continue with user selection.
