Preferred Solution: Write access to program files folder

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am unable to copy files to the Program Files or Program Files (x86) folders, despite my status as Administrator on a single-user system. As an advanced user, I have many legitimate needs to place files there and cannot live with this level of protection
from myself.
How can I defeat this? Many thanks.

A:can i block a program to write access to a specific folder ?

This may sound stupid, but what happens if you just delete that \Video\ folder? Does it get recerated? If not, that may be the easy fix. If not, you can try changing permissions for that one folder.

Hello,
I am unable to write/modify/replace files in the Program Files or Program Files (x86) folders, we have folder that is placed in Program Files folder, lets say MES folder
we use Active Directory System and all user take file from FTP server if there's Program's Update from System that I make, so new file/files will replace old file/files in MES folder, it was work smoothly in Windows 7 Pro, but not in Windows 8.1 Pro
the things I already do was :
1. Change User Account Control Settings to Never Notify (lowest)
2. Turn Off Windows Firewall setting (Domain, Network Location, Public Network)
3. Change advanced security add local user for Full control, modify, read and execute (to take ownership and grant full control permission of the folder and all contents in it)
I Know from forum it must be about user security issue but this 3 steps still not change anything
How can I defeat this?

Many thanks.

I have two computers,connected in a network by a crossover cable,
working in a workgroup and running different OS-Win-XP and Win-7. One is XP-PC and the other is
7-PC. I attempted to open the Program files folder on 7-PC from XP-PC, but the access was denied. I
am able to open all other folders in the System partition-?C? of the 7-PC from the XP-PC. I am
imagining that the culprit is ?Security? tab, but I am unable to figure out what to change. And my
question is: How to make the Program files folder accessible from the XP-PC?

A:How to access the Program files folder from another(XP) PC?

I assume you have a suitable user set up, with admin privilege, with the same password, on both machines and all the correct shares are set.

As the Program Files ownership is not ser as the administrators, but Trusted Installer, It appears that this is preventing access as it is designed to do

It may be possible to access the folders if you give the local user full control of this folder, but this is a dangerous route to take as it circumvents security and may allow malware access to the system

You should be able to log in with Remote Desktop to allow modification in this and other system folders

On my home LAN, I have updated one of the PCs to Win XP Pro. It's an upgrade from Win 2000 and the file system is NTFS. The otehr PCs are a combo of Win XP and Win98.

When I try to access this PC over the network I can not access the Program Files folder on the C drive (I get an access denied msg).

I (think) have set all the Sharing and Security settings correctly - I am NOT using Simple Fle Sharing. If I set the permissions for one of the sub-folders (eg. Photos) within the Prog Files directory I can directly access those files.

If I map a network drive to the C drive as "C$", and then look at that over the LAN, I can log in as the Administrator (with p/w) and then I can access all of the folders (including Prog Files) without restriction.

I got to thinking that maybe some of the folders/files within the Prog Files directories had 'inherited' some restricted permissions so I also tried to take ownership of all the files in Prog Files - but that didn't seem to help...

Therefore why can't I access the Prog Files folder without using C$, even if I've set all the sharing and security settings properly?

Hi I have a Windows program that is installed in the default C:\Program Files (x86) folder, and of course it cannot write some of the data it needs to write to that folder. I assume that is because of the Windows 7 permissions.
Is there a simple way to allow this particular program to write to its install folder despite permission restrictions? I already moved its data folder to my data partition but this is for some files that I do not have the option to move to another folder.
Thank you.

A:Program cannot write to installed folder

Run the program as administrator. Right click the programs .exe file and click 'Run as Administrator". Then it can do what ever you need it to, despite permissions.

I am trying to uplift our 32 bit Eclipse RCP application to 64 bit end state.In order to do that I have updated all the required dependencies and dlls. Also I am able to launch the application under 64 bit environment only when the application is kept anywhere
outside Program Files or Program Files(x86). When it is installed in the said location it could not be launched , a result view could not be created because it tries to write a search file in the place where it is been installed.

But the main problem is the same set of code works for 32 bit version no matter where it is installed. Also the 32 bit version of application can read or write result to any desired location without being launched as admin. And the 64 bit version of the application

NoVirusThanks File System Protector is a powerful utility which uses a kernel-mode driver to completely lock a file or a folder and to deny write access to files (allow read-only). You can write rules for any process or only for specific processes, you can lock files or folders and you can also protect files from modifications (write access) so that processes can only read the file content, but not hijack or modify it. With NoVirusThanks File System Protector you can protect sensitive files and folders from unauthorized accesses or modifications, a swiss army knife against nasty ransomware like CryptoLocker family or to just protect important files.

On the ?Settings? tab you can specify a custom logs folder to save blocked events, and on ?Exclusions? tab you can manage trusted applications (using wildcards), so they are excluded from the block-rules. To edit the default rules or to create your custom rules, open the ?Rules? tab and then click the button ?Edit Rules? (it may ask you Admin credentials) to edit the Rules.DB file. The rules are updated in real-time and writing rules is very easy, you can use wildcards characters and aliases, example:


Code:

[%OPER%: DENY_ALL] [%PROC%: *] [%FILE%: C:\locked-file.txt]
[%OPER%: DENY_ALL] [%PROC%: *process.exe] [%FILE%: *\LockedFolder]

My network has 2 PC's, one of which had XP installed when purchased. The other had Windows 98, and has been recently upgraded to XP. I want to be able to access any file from either machine. On the PC that was upgraded from Win 98, I have set Drive C to be shared. The other PC can access any file, including those in the Program Files folder. It can, for example, run PaintShop Pro across the network, even though it's not installed on that machine.

I have set Drive C on the other PC to be shared, but I cannot access its Program Files folder from the (former) Win 98 PC. I get "Access Denied" messages.

Does anyone know how to allow complete sharing of all files?

I have an Advent (PC World brand) Laptop that comes with its own custom On-Screen Display software.

The software is made for 32 bit Windows with no 64 bit version available as far as I'm aware.

I have upgraded to 64 bit Windows recently and everything seems to work great except the OSD.

When installing. I'm given a choice of where I want to install the program in which I choose

C:\Program Files

after installation a mandatory restart is required and after the reboot OSD always ends up in
the other Program Files folder and I receive a error when trying to launch the OSD

I assume this error is because it gets confused being in the wrong directory (although I could be wrong and its simply just not compatible with 64bit Windows)

Anyone have a way to force it to install in the standard Program Files folder?

its the only way to tell if things like caps lock are enabled or not, so its pretty frustrating without it.

A:Program refusing to install in standard program files folder

In 64-bit Windows, the folder Program Files (x86) is for 32-bit applications. Try installing your OSD application there instead of the Program Files folder which is meant for 64-bit applications.

A:How to allow a Program access to folder?

If you're running as admin, programs already have access to almost all folders. If you're not, run the program as admin. Right click the .exe or shortcut to it and the option is there.

A:cabinet files in program files folder?

Its for DirectX, what version is installed on your system?



Quote:




DXSetup.exe is a standard installer that independent software vendors (ISVs) can use to install the Microsoft? DirectX? 9.0 redistributable runtime. It provides an easy way for developers to install the DirectX 9.0 runtime without having to write a custom installer. The standard installer is included in the (SDK root)\Redist\DirectX9 folder.

Hello!

I'm pretty sure this is a dumb question, but here goes:


So I've finally upgraded to Win7x86 Pro. But I've noticed something kinda odd. I've found that some programs' configuration settings are not being saved. I've also noticed that in each instance, the configs are being stored in appdata/roaming or in the "program files" subdirectories for the given app.

What to do besides installing all my software outside "program files"? And what to do about programs that save configs in appdata?

I'm pretty sure something can be done in Security (I'm familiar with setting permissions/ownership/etc, but I'd rather not tinker until someone drops me a line on this).

I'm an experienced user, so I'll probably get any instructions easily, so don't feel the need to over-explain =)

Thanks so much for reading, and thanks for the help!

I have a 3 computer network, hardwired. The latest addition is a HP laptop with Win XP media.
I have gotten the network to work and can access the internet through my router, but I cannot see the files on certain C drive folders such as Program files. I have Norton Security on this computer and this may be the problem. I have disabled Windows firewall. I get an error message saying that access is denied.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thank you.

A:Help with Program Files Folder Please

This is a common problem after installing the ati cat driver. To fix it, just delete the folder that the driver decompressed its files into. In your case, it is probably C:\program files\ati.

Make sure any folder you delete is for the decompressed driver files; not files for an ati app you have installed.

okay, i am having a major problem with this..

i have been trying to fix for hours. and am begining to think i am going to have to re-install windows vista.

i am using vista 32-bit.

and for some reason, when i go to the C:\ drive on my computer there is no Program Files folder.

i have already enabled "show hidden files and folders" in the folder options.

and still nothing.

so i opened up command prompt and changed the directory to C:\

typed in dir to show the directory of the C drive.

and still nothing.

but when i changed the directory to C:\Program Files\

it came up with all my installed programs in program files.

could this be a windows explorer problem? (explorer.exe under proccess list when hitting Ctrl+Alt+Del)

if so, is there anyway to reinstall it without having to reformat my whole hard drive?

Thanks,
-Bryce

I noticed that my Program Files folder shows a preview of a photo that I have never saved in that location. It also appears in the PerfLogs folder almost right next to it located on the Local Disk.

The Program Files x64 folder doesn' have this issue, only the x86 folder. I thought I could customize the folder but of course Microsoft does not allow that.

Why is Vista generating a folder preview using a photo that was never located in these folders?

I have two hard drives, one is 200GB the so-called main one I am currently using and the older is the smaller 40GB drive.

The issue is I have many of the same programs on the smaller drive as on the newer bigger drive. If I uninstall the those from the older drive, will it affect the newer installations on the main drive.

Will a "delete" be all that is necessary?
 

A:Program files folder in two directories

Check your Add/Remove programs Control Pannel to see if you have multiple versions showing installed there.

Also, you could right click on one of the programs in each directory and check to make sure that the link to the file is, or is not, referring to the same file. One of the two may just be shortcuts.

If you are referring to system files, just make sure that you would only remove the files that are on the drive that do not contain your OS.
