When I set permissions I uses the application SetACL.
Usually the permissions set by my AdminStudio gets messed up.

We usually set permissions trough secedit.exe.

Check this AppDeploy Tip from Bob Kelly or my AppDeploy Post about secedit.
The Microsoft Info about secedit you find here.

Hope this helps

Cheers

ok, so i want to use secedit.exe method to set the permissions. The problem that i have is how can i put that in my package using the custom action. In other words, i'm not sure which options i need to set for the custom action to work. I want this custom action to take place after the package has been installed successfully . If someone can point me to a custom action tutorial it would be great!
thank you!
