Adding user permissions for cmd.exe in vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Does anyone know how to add a new user to the permissions for the cmd.exe executable on vista.

    I am trying via
    ->select user object

    I am trying to add the following users:

    however when you click the final o.k I just get the message:
    "Unable to save permission changes on cmd.exe.
    Access is denied"

    I need to do this as it's a known resolution for allowing the php fastcgi module to call shell_exec

    Many Thanks
