    How would it help? I don't know much about it....
    SOLUS3 installs an agent on each machine, it'll then get the update pushed out centrally from your DS and it'll apply the update the local service account. SOLUS3 is included in your SIMS annual maintenance, just a question of asking your LEA what they're planning.

    Putting in %LOCALAPPDATA%\ allowed the standard user to upgrade....

    This allows unrestricted to "C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local"

    My plan is to split my security policy and only add this unrestriction the week after any sims updates to a teachers GPO

    Good solution, that's what i was going to suggest after reading some of the responses. I found lots of files go there when users run reports and stuff too. Roaming profiles in Win7 caused us lots of issues, and some files still go local, and then were not able to be edited a second time. So they could run mailmerge reports once but not a second time. Weird things. Anyhoo, might be worth looking at other things in SIMs, if you restrictions are so tight.
