Using SetSecurityDescriptorControl

Hi Experts,

I need a little sample about using SetSecurityDescriptorControl in VB6, I need to automate File/Directory security settings for w2k, I think I can use this function to uncheck the flag "Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object" (tab Security of the properties window of directory or files).

The objective is to remove the group "Everyone" access that is assigned by default, I tried with DeleteAce but by default the OS inherits rights to "Everyone" for the directories and files.

Best regards and thanks in advance...

xSinbad,

The code in the reference helped me to complete my program..

Really to work with NT_Security_2.dll is simpler than to use the security APIs by yourself...

Thanks a lot,
