Windows Server 2008 R2  Need to copy a file from another server and re-register it to get my back up exec recovery disk created.  (Copy Dismprov.dll from another Windows 8/8.1 or Windows Server 2012/2012 R2, and re-register it with command: regsrv32 Dismprov.dll ) This admin account has full control at the Local Disk  C level this directory is under. Not inherited down to Windows folder level.

I logged in as domain administrator and I see the domain admin account under security tab with no permissions.  Try to modify with edit and then with advanced and it won't let me make the modifications. When I try to replace the files says don't have permissions.

Can someone tell me how to set the permission at the folder level for the administrator to copy the file.  I also tried this as a local admin and got same.  It says need permission from a trusted installer to modify the file.  I see that under security but no way to tie that to the admin account.

Had plenty of practice at this as a lot of programs want to install to Program Files and then copy to system 32 their dlls, and Windows doesn't always like that.
Whoever invented "Trusted Installer" should be on a bread line. :)
Have a great day.
