    when we open a new project one normal user ("UserA") creates with a
    batchfile a project folder with standard subfolders. some of these
    subfolders require special user rights (eg. allow only one group).

    How can I grant the rights to create the folders/subfolders and set
    access rights to "UserA" only?

    Please remember, that UserA runs a batchfile, editing (right click on
    the link on the desktop, edit) will show him eg. that cacls.exe is run.
    I tried to st userrights on the batchfile "only run", however, without
    rights to "read" the file it does not work - but then UserA can see
    what is in the file. Is there a way to set user rights to run a
    batchfile without beeing able to read it?

  2. You should set a special NTFS permissions to user read/change permissions on
    that path. You can do that using Windows Explorer

    Hi Danilo,
    I am using a batchfile to do this as this is a complex procedure. for
    the batchfile i need cacls.exe, right? so, I need read/execute
    permissions on cacls.exe, right? this is a security problem, right?
