chmod is a command that changes the mode of a file. That pretty much sets the permissions. I don't see why you would have to use Linux or chmod exclusively to make this happen.

It sounds like you have some software that is linux based...and for that, you will need to be running a Linux machine.

Am I missing something or can you not achieve the same effect as CHMOD by right clicking on the file and select "properties","security" tab, "advanced"? You may be able to achieve what you want just going as far as the "security" tab bit but there is greater flexibability under advanced. Word of caution though... make sure you don't lock youself out of the file!!

Most hosting software is linux based but does allso function ok on windows

the creater of the software used ftp to access my files but failed to chmod them as win 7 just reverterd them back to readable only

He also has customers using his software on win 7 machine with no problems at all

i have spent hours playing with the permmision and security tabs but it fails

so i figure the answer is to put linux on my hosting machine and run it from there

and put the software on my machine and make a virtual site on my win 7 and play some more

Have you tried installing Cygwin on your Win machine?

Thats suggests something different between your Windows 7 and the customers. Have you tried turning UAC off?

Cygwin would also do the trick.

Right click on the file or folder and edit the security permitions for the relevant user.
