Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2008.

  • You use the Icacls.exe command prompt utility to manage the access permissions of a folder on this computer.

  • You do not have permission to access the folder, the files in the folder, and the subfolders.

  • You remove the inheritance flag of the folder.

  • You use the /T switch to make sure that the changed permission is applied to the folder, to all the files in the folder, and to all the subfolders. Additionally, you use the /C switch to make sure that the operation continues if any file errors occur.

In this scenario, the access permission is applied to the folder. However, the access permission is not applied to all the files in the folder, and to all the subfolders. Additionally, the command returns error code 5. However, the command reports that the number of failed processes is 0.

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 file information notes

Important Windows Vista hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, only "Windows Vista" is listed on the Hotfix Request page. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows Vista" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table.

    Version

  • Service Pack 1 is integrated into the release version of Windows Server 2008. Therefore, RTM milestone files apply only to Windows Vista. RTM milestone files have a 6.0.0000.xxxxx version number.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows Server 2008 and for Windows Vista" section. MUM files and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
