On C:/program files(x86)/Application_name folder, Application does not having full access to the created files.

What I have tried:

Application service can be able to create a file in the app's folder. The file created could not be modify/delete by the service. When the service tries to upload the file to server through curl library. It also gets failed with curl error.

What would be reason for failing to upload files that created by app service in the above mentioned folder?

Applications which are not running "elevated" do not have write access to the Program Files / Program Files (x86) folders by default. This has been the case for many years.

You need to choose a better location to store the files you want your user to be able to edit:
