Hi all ¡¡
I want to create MSI.
In this msi i want to change ntfs permissions in one folder and all subdirectorys and files of that folder...
I succes change the folder permissions using "files and folders", the subdirectoryes doesn't take hierarchy...
I have tryed in the lockpermission table but i doesnt find solution...
Its possible hierarchy or i need make the permissions in all the subfolders of the tree using cacls.exe?
Thanks all ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

Use a command line tool, rather than the LockPermissions table. The reasons are too boring to detail here yet again. Have a search for 'LockPermissions', if you're curious.

If you're creatiing an MSI from scratch, why do you need to alter permissions? don't your developers know better than to write to program directories?
