I am trying to copy some dll files from server 2012 over to my windows 8.1 system32 folder so that I can register the dll's necessary to bring back the dial in tab in RSAT. I copied the necessary files but when I try to paste those files in the system32 folder of my windows 8.1 computer I get an access denied error.
1. I already tried taking ownership - failed - still get access denied.
2. I tried doing this with the local administrator account. - failed - still get access denied.
3. I tried xcopy to copy the files over through a elevated command. - failed - still get access denied.
there has to be a way to grant permissions to the system32 folder. I just can't figure it out. Does anyone on here know how to do this. Open to all suggestions. this question is worth 500 points. thanks.
