Is there a way to tell InstallShield 2008 that when creating a folder to give the "Users" group full control? My application has a data folder that is created during the installation. My Application then creates new log files, etc. in this folder. The problem I am having is that for some users the data folder is created with insufficient privileges and my application cannot create files there.
If I tell the user to manually change the folder security so that the "users" group has full privileges then application works fine and it can create the necessary files. I can probably get around this through some UAC setting but I thought I would explore a simpler solution first.
Thanks,
Jason
