Deployment of a project...How can the xml files generated not be read only?

joshrduncan2012 asked:

Open original thread
When I deploy a project, the project fails on creating XML files. It works fine in Visual Studio. It says they are read only when it's deployed.

Here is what I have for one of the two xml file generators:

void write_pstest_file()
            XDocument pstest_file = new XDocument(
                new XElement("testmenu",
                new XElement("showwebhelp", "true"),
                new XElement("menuitem",
                new XAttribute("key", "ca93df85-9204-4245-a587-b63439f4a3a2"),
                    new XElement("includefile", "picoTMS.pstest")
            pstest_file.Save("C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Pico Technology\\PicoScope6 Automotive\\test.pstest");

How can I make these non read-only so they can be created once the app is deployed? Google sites are of no-help. :(
