What permissions do I need?  This is my own machine.


XmlTextWriter textWriter = new XmlTextWriter("C:\\myXmFile.xml", null);
            // error A required privilege is not held by the client.

Thanks,

You need write permission to the root of the C: drive. Try writing it to your "My Documents" folder to confirm that it is just the root you cannot write to.

Actually, having just realized this is an ASP.Net question - the account that IIS is running under will need write permissions (assuming you aren't doing any kind of impersonation, etc)

I wrote to a folder that I have permissions for.
