Hi,

I want to apply particular permissions to a folder that's part of my .msi installation package.

In the permissions dialog box I can see how to do it - but it seems to expect a DOMAIN\User combination.

I want to be able to assign permissions to the Local Workstation\Users group - what's the syntax for that in the permissions dialog?

Thanks
Chas

It's been a year or so since I used that, but I think it's either you just leave it blank like

Users


or you could use some property like

[COMPUTERNAME]\Users


However I have some serious issues with LockPermissions which if you search for that and my last name you will find. I reccomend a custom action instead.
