We have a program that manages our company.

It writes an .ini file in the c:\windows  folder.

Each user must have 100% access to this file.

Im using a beta net work running a windows 2k3 server as the PDC.  I have 1 clinet machine hooked up to this net work.

I have logged in as the Domain Admin localy on the clinet, but I cannot find the the Doman Users when Im in the security, advanced and find now.

Clicked LOCATION but it only shows me the name of the clinet pc not the server.

How can i tell it that all domain users have access to that file?

Try right clicking the files and choose properties > security tab > advanced button > effective permissions tab > put in the user or group you would like to check > and poof! you are shown the access to that file by that group or user.
Hope this helps

Sorry. I thought you asked how to tell IF domain users have access.
It is about the same but now just go properties>security>add> and select the domain> and type in the group or user you want. Hit check name and when it is underlined select O.K. then set permissions on the security screen that will be left on your screen.
That is how I do it.
