    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...

    Massive talk last year about a web browser version of SIMS in the pipe. This may have been dumped though in favour of getting the same funcationality in SLG, which would be an obvious step.

    Phil... any advance?

    to disable UAC: Computer Config\Preferences\Windows Settings\Registry -->New Registry Item:

    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--->

    Policy 1:
    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)

    Policy 2:

    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:

    Key 1:

    MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes
    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.

    Good Luck
