Write permission

Post by AKP »

During my installation, I copy files into the ProgramData directory (<CommonAppData><AppName>test.xml). Unfortunately, my program does not have write access to this file. I thought that write permissions were available for everyone in this folder. What am I doing wrong?
Thank you.

Yes, the ProgramData folder has the write access.
Its strange that you app cannot write to this folder.
Anyway try to set the full access to the folder:

Go to the System \ Commands page, and add:

Code: Select all

File: 		<SystemDir>\icacls.exe
Parameters: 	"<CommonAppData>\<AppName>" /grant:r Users:(OI)(CI)F /T
Launch on OS: 	All
Show: 		Normal or Hide
Timing: 	After Installation
Wait: 		No
Run as admin: 	No*
