i am working on an application , which works fine as an admin, but as a user it cannot launch, it needs write access to c:\windows\temp which has been locked down for the user. we are not supposed to give write permission to c:\windows\temp folder in the current environment ? any suggestion to solve this issue

Thanks in Advance

If the file or files in temp have a consistent name, you might consider installing the temp files and setting permission on those files- they could then update/overwrite them as users. While there are application management systems that may allow it, I don't think changing the permissions on the temp folder during execution of your application is going to be a trivial task.

I'd ask the vendor about why they are not using %TEMP% !
