how to set permissions for a single file
Posted on 2009-04-28
Here's the environment:
Windows XP .
Pc is in a workgroup NOT a domain.
Rights are inherited from the Program Files folder.
My experience in such things:
What I want to do:
Prevent members of the "Users" group from executing Fix.exe. (See above)
But, I want to allow members of the Administrators group to execute it.
It seems that when I deny the Users group Read and Execute permissions, the Administrator is also affected.
That really confuses me.
Can I ask for some advice as to how I might allow Administrators to execute this file while denying Users the same privilege ?
Thanks in advance.
