I have installed a ASP.NET application in Windows 2003 server and need to remove readonly rights from a folder so that the users who access the IIS can write to this temporary folder. But everytime when i remove the readonly rights from the folder and save, next time when I open the older readonly right is enable. the color of the check box is gray. I have tried by all mean to make this work but it just won't work. The same ASP.NET system is working in Windows XP without any issues.

You said you tried everything, so I just want to see how far you went into this:

Did you give yourself ownership of the file?

Did you also go to the command prompt and use ATTRIB to try and remove the read only permission to the file?

Did you try fileACL.exe to change attributes?

I tried ATTRIB. but didnt use fileACL.exe. what we are trying to do is to write into this directory called "Tempdocs". Is there a definite way to get this done?

If anything can get the premissions straight it is fileACL.exe.

How many tabs to you see in the file? Do you see the standard four tabs. If not, you will have to take ownership of the file or folder.

What I would do first is make sure I have ownership of the file, so that I could modify the ACL of that file.

Oh, my mistake. I should have been more clear>

You want to take ownership as a local administrator or domain admin to change the read only permission.
