    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here goes. We have
    an application deployed to about 150 users that installs to the c drive in a
    location similar to C:\LameApp\. We've been instructed to give a particular
    AD group "Write" rights on this directory. Our options are to manually hit
    each PC, programatically make the changes or possibly use Active Directory to
    accomplish this.

    Does anyone know if it would be possible to change rights on a local
    directory through a group policy or anything like that in Active Directory?

    I appreciate any help on this.....

  2. A group policy object will let you do this. Work is done under computer
    configuration > security > file system if my memory serves me right. (Pick
    the directory and then specify the rights.)

    An alternative is a computer startup script that uses CACLS to change the
    rights on C:\LameApp.
