either with mfc or .net (c++ or c# preferred)

Here's the scenario - I have an MFC dialog app that I am trying to make vista-compatible.  I need to be able to write to files in the installpath (and subdirs) at all time, so I figure that i need to give the "Everyone" account full access to the folder.  Can I do this with code, or will I need to have the end user change the permissions?

Thanks for any suggestions you can offer!!
