machine folder. It works fine for administrator but If I run it with
restricted user (not having permissions to local machine folder) it gives me
Access denied error.

Hello Kiran,

machine folder. If I run it with restricted user it gives me Access denied
How can I programmaticall y give permission to the foder for restrcited

If you are using C# 2.0, you could use the
System.Security .AccessControl. FileSecurity class and its SetAccessRule
method (for example) to modify the Access Control List (ACL) of the folder
you want to write to.

However, if the restricted user is not allowed by the administrator to
change the permissions of the folder, then you are out of luck. Here's an
easy rule of thumb: if you cannot do something interactively (i.e. copy a
file to a folder), then you also cannot write code that would suddenly let
you write to that folder.

So you either need to give more permissions to the restricted user, or copy
your file to another folder.

Hope this helps.

In Windows 2000 I need permissions set so that I can write a text file to the folder when the asp page is loaded. Right now I have only these permissions set: Administrator: Full System: Full Everyone: Read and Execute, List, Read Network: Read and Execute. List. Read Is there some other "user" that I can give permissions to to write a text file to the folder that doesn't allow write permissions to IUSER_MachineName? Thanks. --

Hi there, I do not have much experience nor knowledge about security in ASP.NET nor Windows, so I apologize if I sound naive in this question.

It seems ASPNET user account can move some files but not all types of files because it does not have enough permissions to...
