Changing security settings of a file via a scheduled task or service
Posted on 2004-04-19
We have a programme running on Windows 2003 Server as a service. It creates a log file, and everytime it writes to the log file it changes the security settings so only Administrator has rights to view the file. Even if I manually reset the security settings on the file, when it next writes back to it, it resets the security back to Admin only.
I would like to run some sort of a programme that is scheduled to run a few minutes afterwards, that resets the security on the log file so that standard users can view the log file.
Does anyone know of any software that can do this??
