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?
