I've been doing some research on SubInACL.exe and it appears to be
designed for use with Win XP/Server 2003. The recommendations I saw on
the forums was to migrate to icacls.exe. Do you have any info on this?

To answer Lonney's post I do agree with him however we are going to
try to approach the WPKG update process from a variety of angles
probably including Group Policies and/or scheduled tasks however we
would like to have user initiated updates as one of the options so our
help desk staff can help a user trigger an immediate upgrade.
