    Setting file permissions through transform

    Is it possable to set file system permissions through a transfrom?

    I have avendor provided MSI that places folders on the workstation that need to have user permissions applied to manually post install. If possable I would like to add this to a transform either directly or through a custom action. Anyone have any processes to do this?

    Setting file and folder permissions within a Transform

    Within the Transform:

    Right cliclk on the directoy you want to add permissions and choose Properties.

    Choose the Permissions button

    Select the Insert key on your keyboard

    When you add permissions for anyone, you MUST always add Full Control for Administrator as well.

    normally for permissions, I add Users and Power Users with Modify permissions and Administrators with Full Control.

    You may also find with testing the package, that you might have to add the same permissions to and and all subdirectories if they are not inherited.
