Bug in File Permission

Post by btucker »

Using Actual Installer version 6.2. When the installer overwrites our main .exe file with the newer version, it does not keep the same file permission as they were previously. The users complain they cannot access the .exe file because of permission. They have to manually go and reset permissions to the .exe file and then they are able to run it.

This was not an issue in prior versions of Actual Installer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

You could add the cacls as a post setup command;

Code: Select all

<SystemDir>\cmd.exe
/C CACLS <InstallDir>\Main.exe /E /T /C /G "Domain Users":F
