Xampp - Windows Vista - Read only files/folder problem

Postby Zombay » 26. February 2009 03:05

Hello!
I just installed Xampp in Vista and noticed that I can't edit files directly in htdocs/myfolder because Windows says "This is a read-only document".
I have tried attrib -r -a "C:\Program files\xampp" /s /d -but it says denied for htdocs and licenses -folders.
I have also try to disable "Read only" from folder properties, but after I click OK and go back to properties, read only it's enabled again.

What should I do?

You have disabled UAC and you are logged in as an administrator but still can't edit files, correct?

Also being a Super Administrator might help:

User Account Control

To disable UAC go to
Start>Control Panel>User Accounts
there you will find an option
Turn User Account Control on or off
just click on it and uncheck
User Account Control to help protect your computer
click OK.
