Hi

I have an exe that runs without any problems from the Administrator account however when the user logs on it does not load. I have checked the permissons

User A has full control of the folder and within advanced options it appears as follows
Type                                     Inherited from
Allow User A read & execute   C:\Program Files
Allow User A full control        not inherited

1. How can I change the read & excute to full control ( I have checked the folder and sub folder and they are full control)
2. How can I change the not inherited to inherited from C:\Program Files
Why have I got two settings for User A when all I want is for all users to have full control to this particular folder

Thank

1. Those settings are correct to give User A full control of that folder.  If you want to reset all permissions under that folder then check the "Replace permission entries on all child objects..." under Advanced.  Keep in mind that this will wipe out any customized NTFS permissions set on subfolders.

2. In order for it to show up that way you would have to grant User A full control of C:\Program Files.  It doesn't sound like that's necessary.  Permissions are additive, so having inherited Read & Execute does not interfere with having explicit Full Control.

What errors come up when the user tries to run the program?  It's likely that it needs access to registry keys and files outside that folder.  You can use Regmon and Filemon to determine exactly what it's trying to access.

It looks like Microsoft has merged them into a single utility.
