I had a BAT file that I made and used on Windows XP clients for making directories & copying shortcuts we use for AutoDesk Civil 3D 2009 (C3D) that I'm now trying to modify to use on Windows 7 x64 clients. I did notice that C3D now installs in the "C:\Program Files (x86)\" directory & believe that I have modified the attached text version of the BAT accordingly. When I ran it, the command prompted flashed on-screen...but no new directories. So I copied & ran the first line directly in a command prompt & it appears that with Windows 7, I get an "Access is Denied" when trying to create a directory under "C:\Program Files (x86)\". With further testing, I noticed that I can create folders from the command prompt without issue.
I tried right clicking the BAT file & clicked "run as administrator"...no luck.
I'm pretty sure my account has administrator priveleges. I'm a domain admin & created a user on the Windows 7 workstation with administrator rights too. (I didn't have any problems installing anything.)
