Auto upgrading sims on clients (permissions)
How do I get Sims to actually upgrade the clients reliably. I'm sure its just a permissions thing but some work, some don't, different updates seem to have different problems.
Currently I add the teachers and admin OU's to the local power user group on the machine. This seems to work but not 100%.
Whats simsperm.bat for and how do I use it?
SIMSupgradehandler server path
A few people have contacted me regarding the simsupgradehandler and clearly the path to the sims server is the biggest stumbling block.
i've edited the code so that it now prompts for the path to the sims server, it needs to be via the mapped drive that the user's use, upto and including the setups folder with trailing slash.
i'm attaching this updated version so people can try it out in their own environment and then let me know what path they need hard coding into the program.
i'm quite enjoying playing around with the vb so am willing to try any other mods requested if i have the time.
let me know how it goes, and the caveats in previous post still apply.
for those unfamiliar, the simsupgradehandler.exe file is aimed at laptop users and will check if a sims update is needed, if so, it informs the user of this and gives them the opportunity to plug into the wired network before continuing with the update.
