Vista Permissions/Compatibility? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I'm just running Vista Premium on my home desktop.

    Mine is the only account and is the administrator, but I can't seem to edit anything in the folder Windows/winsxs. I have an installer file for a program that needs to write to said location but it can't and neither can I. It asks me for administrative permission and I click allow but then it says Access Denied.


    I've exhausted myself on all the security settings but unfortunately I'm no closer to the root of the problem, does anyone know where I can ask?
