First of all.. Welcome to MSFN.

You are going to replace lots of files then....you have to take ownership of those files that are to be replaced.

You can take ownership by executing these commands for each file or you can make a batch file too.

takeown /f <File Name>

icacls /grant <File Name> Administrators:F

NOTE: Commands are to be executed in Administrator Mode.

Then you should rename all the files and then replace....If you have enabled UAC it prompts for Continue...Click Continue to proceed next.

Maybe, though it seems to me very similar to the one already posted before, and a mere 1 1/2 years late. :whistle:

[RESOLVED] I am using Windows 7 64-Bit and this worked perfect for me. The was only one problem with your Command line argument

Instead of

icacls /grant <File Name> Administrators:F

Should be

icacls <File Name> /grant Administrators:F

Note: Assuming that this will work with Windows Vista as well. You must run the (Formerly known as MSDOS) as administrator. Right-Click -> Run As Administrator -> Then input the two command line args. Take ownership and grant permissions.
