  • it maybe like some of the folder/directory the user you are logged in with doesn't have rights to grant permissions.

  • Hi we need ,
    Does "users on my system" means users in your computer but not in the domain ?
    If so , you should use "COMPUTERNAME\MyAccount" where computername is the name of your local machine and MyAccount is the name of a valid windows account with the proper access security to change file permissions. So ,please modify

    string User = System.Environment.UserDomainName + "\\" + comboBox1.SelectedItem.ToString();


    string User = System.Environment.MachineName + "\\" + combobox1.SelectedItem.ToString();

    In addition ,please make sure the account exist and that they are spelled correctly .
