    You will be able to deploy the Spring Release via Solus3.

    Mike is right re: solus 3, however if you do not have this yet try my script on this thread:

    Sims install windows 7 problem (unable to write to shared directory "(S:\SIMS)"

    You can do this now without making them admins. We have done this via group policies. You will need to set the 'Always install with elevated privileges' on the policy set for staff. This alone will not do it.

    You will also need to add an entry in the security Setting for the paths to the SIMS setups.

    So:

    User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Installer
    Always install with elevated privileges - Enabled

    User Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Software Restrictions\Additional Rules\
    New Path Rule
    Path = <your sims drive mapping? example S:\SIMS\Setups\
    Security Level - Unrestricted

    This should allow the user to run updates, they will need to click yes to accept, if they do click no then you will need to visit the machine with a local admin and re-run the application setup.

    Hope this helps.
