It is a standalone executable, so you shouldnt have problems :)

Take Control for Windows Vista.


your tool doesn't work on NON English versions of Vista. :whistle:

you used the following code:

process.StartInfo.FileName = "icacls";
		process.StartInfo.Arguments = file + " /grant Administrators:(F)";

Administrators is the name on english Vistas, but on non english version the identification of the group Administrators is translated. For Example Administratoren in german. So you code doesn't work. You have to change the string according to the installed langauge.

Hi XPero,

this version grants access to the user Administrator, but not the group Administratoren (Administrators).

Hi XPero, you used "BUILDIN\Adminstrators" to grant control. This code snippet retrives the translated Name (in German: VORDEFINIERT\Administratoren"). I hope this will work. Could you include this code into your tool?

string getName(WellKnownSidType wksid)
{
	 SecurityIdentifier sid = new SecurityIdentifier(wksid, null);
	 NTAccount account = (NTAccount)sid.Translate(typeof(NTAccount));
	 return account.Value;
}


getName(WellKnownSidType.BuiltinAdministratorsSid)
