C# Read\write access to the programs files directories in XP
Posted on 2010-11-09
I have a self-repairing application that requires access to a folder under the program files directory. Weebo (yeah, I named it after the maintenance droid in flubber...), checkes the App folder (c:\program files\bob\), deletes all of the template files, then copies current template files.
Any discussion of technique is moot for this particular application, but par for the course for future endeavors... Anyways, I know it worked on most machines until recently. The weird thing is that it works on a PC pacted up to SP3, but not on a system that was loaded with SP3 (and then Weebo is installed)
Can someone tell me how to get control of my directory back? It is a big endevor to fix this otherwise.
