I have a group policy that sets permissions on a directory (C:\Program Files....).  The permissions are applied correctly for machines running Windows XP.  All of our Windows 7 machines, however, are not applied.

Windows 7 securtiy policy for the Program Files folder is very strict (way strict) and maybe it'0s own policies are getting priority over the Server's? Try to run those policies on other folder to see if it works.

Turns out it was a setting error.  By default, the group policy uses the "Propagate inheritable permissions to all subfolders and files".

When I changed it to "Replace exisiting permissions all subfolders and files with inheritable permissions", then it did just that... REPLACED the permissions.  PEBKAC!
