You can run simsperms.bat at startup via gpo.
In a new gpo,
put subinacl.exe and the bat as a startup script. (Copy both into the gpo folder).
Copy the path to the folder,
paste in front all lines beginning with subinacl in the batch script.
set script parameters as domain\simsusergroup ( group or user)
I hear the new version of sims will run solus as a service so no more update issues!

I wrote an app in vb that would check the local apps version locally and on server to see if an update was necessary. It would then prompt the user to see if they wanted to continue and run the upgrade. The idea being that if they were on laptop running wirelessly and had forgotten to update SIMS they had the option to back out or plug into the wired network.

We were always told by our LA SIMS support (which was later taken over by Capita) that you needed to give the users Power User rights on the machine, and Full Control over the local C drive. simsperm was never mentioned. As per some of the above posts though, you can be more selective than just giving Full Control over the C drive but if it's only for Staff, we just think what the hell and do it anyway.

Have you tried using the computer GPO security settings. Look at, "computer, security, file stsyem" add object, then select the sims folder on C: & select the security permissions you want users to have on that folder.
This worked for me.
