gpo export would be nice btw I've never sucessfully added reg keys with a GPO? Shame about disabling UAC.
Should save this for the RED DOOR but I wish SIMS worked through a web browser and worked with AD! Bloated garbage that it is...

Action - Replace (or create if thats how you like to do these things!)
Hive - HKEY_LOCAL MACHINE
Key Path - SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies \System
Value Name - EnableLUA
Value Type - REG_DWORD
Value Data - 00000000
That has stopped all my Sims UAC worries.
For the upgrade permissions:
Computer Config\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\File System -->Add File
Two Policies are needed in this location--->
New File--> Folder : %ProgramFiles%\SIMS
Set it to "Configure this file or folder then Propogate inheritable permissions to all subfolders and files" then click "edit Security" and assign your Staff/Sims User group (mine is just called STAFF) the appropriate permissions (enough to Read/write/modify at least or full control)
Repeat this process but for the folder location %SystemRoot%\Sims.ini
Now for the Registry Permissions:
Computer Config\Policies\Security Settings\Registry --->Add Key
4 Keys are needed:
Again choose "Configure this key then propogate inheritable permissions to all subkeys" then choose Edit Security and add your STAFF group with write/modify or full control.
do the same for MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID and then MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface and also MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\TypeLIb (I am quite sure you shouldnt need to set these three keys permissions since it should be inherited by the first Key but I like to be sure)
I hope that long winded explanation covered it, I can always provide screengrabs if you are still unsure.
