Hi,

I have the following situation: I have a WPF application written in C#. In the application I need to access a folder on the network. This foder has the appropriate rights only for a special user. How can I, in my application, access files in this folder with the privileges of this special user?

Best regards
RTSol

You (an Admin, or the 'owner' of that folder) simply need to right-click on the folder and modify the 'permissions'.

Are you familar with the process?

Impersonation was the trick. I searched a bit more and I aslo found this post: http://www.freshclickmedia.com/blog/2008/11/programmatic-impersonation-in-c/

This code worked right out of the box.

Thanks a lot for the trigger

PS. younghv - The idea was to not change the permissions so the user can go there outside my app and mess things up.
