Hello Guys,

I'm a new user..just started using wise for the past 3 weeks. I'm making a web server package.
I have a list of folders and asp files under it.

My issue is how can I set domain wide permission to those folders under D:\inetpu\mywebsite

I mean..i need to give custom permission to my web site folder and folders underneith it.
I know we can give permissions to individual files.

can some one help????

Oliver,

Thanks for your help. I went and lookd at the KB article

http://www.wise.com/KBArticle.aspx?articleno=1340...
can you tell me one more thing....if i apply permission to a folder...will it propagte to child folders after , if I copy few in to that from installation expert???


I mean, i will create a folder from setup editor and will set prmission. now if I go back to files in Installation expert and drag 2 other folders in to what i made before...will it have the permissions flow from parent????

I'm gona try this.....but if u have a suggestions..it will be heelpfull


thanks

hi

1) no, it will not inheritate: "Because Windows Installer cannot ensure that a parent folder installs first, you cannot count on a child folder inheriting the security permissions of the parent."


2) that's why I had to use a script which sets the permisions AFTER the file where copied.

cheers

ok

here is an example, one way to do that.
Everyway leads to Rom ;-)

Create a CustomAction
Action: SetRegPerm
Type: 34
Source: WindowsFolder
Target: "cmd /c c:\setregperm.vbs"

In InstallExecuteSequence:
Action SetRegPerm
Condition Not Installed
Sequence 6650 --> After InstallFinalize

script cool look like that

file1 = "c:\myfilethatneedpermissions.txt"

Set WShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Return = WShell.Run("%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\cacls.exe " & File1 & " /t /e /g " & chr(34) & "mydomain\domain users" & chr(34) & ":C" )


hope that help

hi

you can also mention complete directories: for example

file1 = "c:\my files\"

and yes, it should propagates so you don't have to mention every file :-)

glad I could help.

Best thing would to that you try that right now.

cheers
