Just wondering how I change permissions on a INI file using AdminStudio 6? As it's not treated as a normal file there doesn't appear to be an option for it. Will I need to create a custom action?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Johan

dunno about admin studio specifically, but with any MSI you can call a custom action to cacls to set the permission on the file....

I dunno about admin studio, but I know Wise sometimes has problems with INI files. What I usually do is delete the INI file from the INI section in the setup editor. Add the INI file as a regular files. Make sure to remove the keypath to avoid self-healing. Then you can manually set permissions to the file.

I did think about importing it directly as a file, but I was kinda hoping I wouldn't have to. I know it's alot more fiddling, but I think going for a custom action might be a better way for what I need to do. I prefer to run Secedit as apposed to Cacls though.

Did you try setting permissions to component in which the ini file is present?
