Description:
I need to know how to change the folder permissions for a limited user with my VB program. In otherwords, my VB program creates text files in a couple sub-folders under its installed directory. It works fine for me. But as soon as I switch to a limited user on XP, it does not work because XP does not allow file creating or registry writing unless its in their own folder in My Documents I think. Is there a way to change permissions and allow a limited user to write to the program folder? I need to do this in VB 6.0. Thanks


Deliverables:
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.

Platform:
XP
