    What's this?!

    An upgrade for your SIMS applications it available and was attempted to be run. An error occured during the installation of the new applications. You can continue with running SIMS with the old applications that you previously had installed on this machine, or you can choose to speak with your technical support contact and not run SIMS
    Eh!? Why arent they updating?

    Permissions? Have you tried running the Simsapplication exe manually?

    I'm pretty sure, it will have simsload in there, it's just there weren't enough permission to save some settings and it's failed.
    You don't have Windows 7 do you @Little-Miss ?

    I see, that's odd. I think though that the error is usually because simsload has run, and failed, not because it's not there.

    Try running simsapps as a fix. If there is an untouched machine, try it with an admin account, to prove it is permissions.
    Have you run simsperm.bat or it's equivalent in effect on those machines?

    I'm going to check this tomorrow. Where would the permissions issue be? Not sure why I've only just picked this error up, I guess I've been logging in as administrator when I ran them for the first time.

    I would run the simsperm.bat file found in the setups folder for the user/usergroup you want to be able to install:

    ie simsperm.bat domain\staffgroup

    Should solve any permissions problems.

    Oh ok. Will try that.

    Will be interesting to see if that makes a difference as they are in a MIS group....

    The Permissions they require are

    %programfiles%\sims - Full Control
    C:\windows\sims.ini

    There may be another one that is alluding me

    Can be rolled out through GPO -

    Yes but it should only be needed once for initial setup. Or look at it and apply similar permissions manually or by policy if you have that environment. Take a look at it either way so you can see what was missing.

    On one machine with the issue I've ran simsperm.bat (as staff) and was still getting the issue. Runs as an admin, so must be permissions.

    Staff don't seem to have the permissions mentioned above. So I'm guessing it's that.
