The Windows Access Control Model Part 4

, 7 Sep 2005
The final article in the access control series presents a guide to the access control editor and its associated ISecurityInformation interface.
Filepermsbox is open-source freeware. Use in commercial software is allowed, provided you've agreed to the licence below.

FilePermsBox is a program to give you back the security tab in case it was disabled. It is recommended that all other programs be closed prior to installation. At a minimum, make sure all shell property sheets are closed. This program may not install properly if you do not have the rights to install software. Power user rights are recommended.

You can obtain the latest version of FilePermsBox at this website:

Setup divides the program into three components.

The first component are the core files (the program itself) and are required for installation to proceed.
The second option is the shell integration. Select this if you want FilePermsBox to appear as a shell property sheet extension (where you normally see the security tab).
The final option installs the program documentation (that's the manual and licence). Keep this option checked if you want to reread the licence.

About the Author

Web Developer
United States United States
Mr. Shah is a reclusive C++/C# developer lurking somewhere in the depths of the city of London. He learnt physics at Kings' College London and obtained a Master in Science there. Having earned an MCAD, he teeters on the brink of transitioning from C++ to C#, unsure of which language to jump to. Fortunately, he also knows how to use .NET interop to merge code between the two languages (which means he won't have to make the choice anytime soon).

His interests (apart from programming) are walking, football (the real one!), philosophy, history, retro-gaming, strategy gaming, and any good game in general.

He maintains a website / blog / FAQ / junk at, where he places the best answers he's written to the questions you've asked. If you can find him, maybe you can hire Mr. Shah to help you with anything C++[/CLI]/C#/.NET related Smile | :) .
