Their are a few HKLM keys that have only the "everyone" sid set to read only on a customers SOE. I have attempted to manually insert the administrators sid and apply permission, also inherit parent permissions, without success. Works on all keys except the ones I listed below.
Why I have posted this in this forum is: I need to install Adobe Reader 7.0.9 and it trys to write to the effect keys, which then fails due to permissions , even thought I am the administrator.


Setacl syntax I have used to inherit the parent permissions

setacl.exe -on "HKLM\Software\classes" -ot reg -actn rstchldrn -rst "dacl,sacl" -actn ace -ace "n:administrators;p:Full"

any assistance would be appreciated

Here is the command line I use for a similar problem. There are some small syntax differences but it sets permissions on the specified key and subkeys.

setacl.exe -on "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes" -ot reg -actn ace -ace "n:ADMINISTRATORS;p:full"
