    How are you upgrading the 66 machines to win 7? If its with a deployment tool like MDT or Ghost then I would just install sims onto the master image. The install files are found in the setups folder on the sims server. Having said that some people have moved to Solus 3 to automate the install of sims across the network. You might want to look at solus 3.

    Do you have a current installation of SIMS in school somewhere you can steal config files?
