I have a website in IIS ... the home page appears as expected. However, when I login I get a permissions error on the above mentioned subdirectory. When I navigate to said folder and attempt to grant permissions to the application pool I notice that none of the C:\Windows subdirectories allow adding a new user to the subdirectory ... the Add button is grayed out in the permissions dialog. So, how to I grant permissions on one of the Windows subdirectories! I've spent the whole day Googling this problem to no avail.

What I have tried:

Everything I know to ... mainly right clicking on the subdirectory name, selecting Edit from the inetsrv Properties dialog, selecting Edit but cannot add a Group or User Name since the Add button is grayed out.

Thank you for your quick response ... but the error is still Access Denied even after following the advice in the article. I hate Windows 10 security ...

I found it ... by mistake I found that calcs is depricated and icalcs should be run instead. Here is the command line that worked for me:

ICACLS c:\windows\system32\inetsrv" /INHERITANCE:e /GRANT:rwcf Crucible:F /T /C

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

cacls and icacls...... we are dealing with access control lists (ACLs) not calculators :-)
