I need a way to grant the 'Write' permission to 'All Users' on the 'C:\Temp' directory. This needs to be a purely code solution (not using external scripts like xcalcs). I need the solution in VB .Net. All the solutions I am finding on the web are huge bits of code, and I am sure there must be an easier way. I'm hoping this could be done in a few lines?

        Dim dInf As System.IO.DirectoryInfo
        dInf = New System.IO.DirectoryInfo("c:\aa\")
        Me.setAccessRules(dInf)
    End Sub

    Function setAccessRules(ByRef dInf As System.IO.DirectoryInfo) As Boolean
        Try
            Dim addAccess As New System.Security.AccessControl.FileSystemAccessRule("EVERYONE", _
                                 System.Security.AccessControl.FileSystemRights.FullControl, _
                                 System.Security.AccessControl.AccessControlType.Allow)
            Dim dSec As New System.Security.AccessControl.DirectorySecurity()

            dSec.AddAccessRule(addAccess)

            dInf.SetAccessControl(dSec)
            'completed set of access control!
            Return True
        Catch e As Exception
            MsgBox(e.ToString())
            Return False
        End Try
