    SIMS on a Master Image

    Creating a image to put on a usb stick for staff laptops

    image currently has

    Office
    Impero
    Flash Player
    Adobe Reader
    Shockwave
    SMART Board

    is it advisable to put SIMS on a master image, due to updating purposes could it cause problems down the line??

    We have SIMS on our master WDS image. Its not a major thing as it just pulls the update from the SIMS drive and install silently at startup.

    Do you have it set up to check for updates at startup and install them automatically?
    Sounds interesting if that is the case as after every update the users have to wait ages when they first launch SIMS.

    Its something the LA set up which im "Not allowed to touch". But to my knowledge there is no delay at users starting SIMS.
