Hello Clever Peoples

I have a MSI - and making af MST - and want to give Full rights on a folder = C:\Program Files\TestFolder

I can see in Wise that the Users (group) have full rights on the folder, but
when i install the MSI on Windows7 64 bit, nothing happens.

Under the security tab, the Users still havnt got the full rights.

I have also trying to use Subinacl. It works In WinXp, but when i do the same in Win7, via a custom action,
nothing happens.

I just read in google , LockPermission table dont work in Windows7 - instead MsiLockPermissionsEx , shall be used.
MsiLockPermissionsEx - doesnt exist in the MST - so how is it possible to add that instaed of Lockpermission. ?

I hope you guys can help me out.

Can you plz just explain in details.

Thnx in advance

you can create the table manually.

but a simpler method would be to find an MSI with the table you need in it. Use orca to extract the table to a .idt and import back into the offending msi.

I have tried to find an MSI, with the table, but i didnt find any, or anyone who had the exprience with it.

Just follow the "step" in section Step 2 – Add the MsiLockPermissionsEx Table from the Tutorial: How to Use the MsiLockPermissionsEx Table (and CSI_GetSDDLFromObject Helper Script)

You can use Setacl.

you need to have additional Setacl.exe in you folder or in target machine

i would avoid setacl on a win7 box. May as well do things with native support where you can. better logging / error handling etc.

as for creating the table with orca is easiest. You can select a table then goto edit / export / import etc.
