We run SBS 2011 standard for our small business.  We have some users that need to access their c:\Windows directory for software development purposes.  They are currently listed as standard users.

What would be the best way to open this up for them?

Thanks,

Are they a member of the Local Admin's group on the PC? If they are, then they should be able to access the Window directory.

They are local admins and we haven't run into this problem before.  I thought the local admin would have covered it as well.

Have you any GPO's in Group Policy restricting access? On one of the PCs, open the command prompt and type gpresult /r and press enter and see what GPO's are being applied to the user and computer account.

May be worth disabling UAC on those machines if possible.  With some programs it can cause an issue.

UAC was the problem in this case as the UAC was preventing 3rd party programs from running their scripts.
