    Power User status for all Staff

    We've been having some problems with SIMS.net to do with permissions.

    They have been solved before using simsperm but for some reason (I don't work with SIMS at all) it's not working anymore (and never did for one module according to Capita).

    Anyway, Capita support have said to solve problems we're having we must make all users of SIMS (so all staff basically) Power Users.

    I don't like the sound of this as it enables them to do other things too.

    Does anyone else have them set to this or does SIMS just work (within reason obviously)?

    We have all staff with full control over the SIMS directory (on the local machine) which contains SIMS .net and PARS .net. PARS refuses to run unless this is so for us - I thought SIMS just needed the permisions for upgrades but I could be wrong. Either way - this is all I have had to do and everything works fine (most of the time - this is SIMS afterall )

    All you should need is full access to the sims folder in program files, sims.ini in the windows directory and finally full control over classes located in the registry > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Classes.
    This should enable staff to access all sims modules and also run sims updates automatically.

    There is the 'simsperm.bat' in the setup folder which will set the correct permissions for a given user/group.

    Yeh it's not working though Geoff, or if it does work it needs redoing after every single upgrade!

    That wouldnt suprise me especially if files are being replaced. Might be an idea to add it to the startup script and tell the users to restart their PCs after an upgrade if they are having trouble before contacting you.

    We just put our admin staff AD group in the power users group on the local computer. Seems to work ok.
