  • Question

  • Hai,

             I have deployed my application by creating package given by this url:http://blogs.msdn.com/b/patricka/archive/2012/11/05/how-do-i-deploy-a-windows-8-app-to-another-device-for-testing.aspx. I have given permission to created GUID folder inside windowapps in Program Files.windowApps is a hidden folder in Program files.I set Permission to this folder given by this url:http://www.wikihow.com/Access-Metro-Style-Apps-Installation-Folder-in-Windows-8.We need to give permission for this folder to download the files in the installed location.without permission,the files will never download.Now i need to code dynamically for setting permission for the windowapps folder in Program Files.Is this Possible?Because after installion we cant ask clients to set Permission to the folder.So can anyone pls tell me how to set Permission to the folder given in this link http://www.wikihow.com/Access-Metro-Style-Apps-Installation-Folder-in-Windows-8 through coding dynamically.Pls give me a solution for this?Thanks in Advance

  • Hai Rob Caplan,

                  Thanks for u r rply. If it is not supported the only option is setting the permission manually only.It is not Possible to do through code?

  • Please try to use Local / Roaming Storage for any application specific data storage. Installed Location will just provide you read only access.
