Cannot Take Ownership of Folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an application that is unable to install an update to its folder.  On inspection, the folder is not viewable by Administrator.  I have tried all of the standard methods to take ownership of the folder and nothing works.  I tried:

    * Takeown command

    * ICACLS command

    * Windows File Permission | Advanced | Change Owner

    and all of these fail with Access Denied messages.

    Is there any method by which I can guarantee an ability to take over the folder, so that I can give Administrator additional file permissions that let it change the folder contents?
