The tool, icacls is used to display and modify Access Control List on folders and files. Basically is a list of permissions for objects such as a file or folder, and controls who can access them.

Thought it didn't help so back to the drawing board.

Its the driver

It allows me to finish the install if i just hit ok. but when i try to open it it obviously does not recognize my hardware because there is not driver. However, when i go to control panal the driver is there for my hardware and it is up to date. But that might be a different driver. I have no ideas at this point i have had this problem four three days now. I appreciate the help

Installation

Yes it finishes. However, during the install process it gives me the error but if you hit continue, it continues. But when you open it, it does not recognize hardware because it never installed the driver. It just skips the driver install and continues. I also tried to download and install a driver update but it does the same thing. It wont let me install the update

the system administrator has set policies that prevent your installati

This is my third day trying to figure this out. Im trying to install protools and i keep getting this error when it goes to install my device driver. I have windows7 home addition. There is no option for local security policies in administrative tools. I also tried UAC but there is no option to turn it off just to move it down. I also tried installing as administrator to no avail. This error is all over the internet. I also tried registry booster. It fixed alot of errors but it still does not work.

Can anyone solve this problem if you can you will be helping alot of people

Where did you get your OS image? download or purchase?

Was it a clean install or upgrade?

Any registry editing?

Have you contacted the vendor? Check and make sure you have the 64 bit program.
