GAH! [:@]

I'm having a nightmare figuring out how to change the permissions of a data directory for an app I'm packaging under DevStudio. I know to right-click, properties, permissions...but on the "Name(s)" section none of the syntax I'm using works and the app keeps crashing on install. Basically, I just want to give users modify access. I thought it would just be:



or similar?

The help file is gibberish...to me anyway.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I am not sure about DevStudio but in ORCA I tend to use the following...
Domain: Blank - this field is nullable. I have not been on a client site where this was required.
Users: "Everyone" - I recomend making a 2nd permission for "Administrators" as the installer tends to remove all other permissions on the directory.
Permission: "1073741824" - This is the decimal code for "write access!. Perhaps for the administrators use "268435456", which is "Generic all".
Good luck! [8D]
