Write access to Program Files (x86) folder under Windows Vista


  • Hi,


    I wanted to follow the instructions on:




    to integrate the Platform SDK into Visual Studio C++ Express.


    Even in the administartor account I have no write access and also cannot gain write access to the files mentioned. Even when I log in as normal user and use the virtualization feature, when I restart Visual Studio the files are not changed although saving seems to be successful and Visual Studio starts with the old values. How can I tell Visual Studio and Windows Vista that I really want to write to these files?





    PS: I always get a cannot open include file 'afxres.h'.

    when I try to compile, although the include path is set.

  • For the PS problem (afxres.h) I have a solution found on my own. The resource compiler must have the include paths, not the C/C++ compiler. Under general the the settings can be done.
