CreateFile with access system security problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm getting this problem on windows 7.
    I created a vhd file and mounted it as a drive.

    When I try to open/create a file on it with ACCESS_SYSTEM_SECURITY flag in CreateFile API, the CreateFile fails with error 5, access denied.

    The program started as administrator and have updated the privileges of the process appropriately.
    Same call to other files in different volumes works well.

    I this known problem with on VHD mounted drives?
    Any solution for this?
