Hi David and welcome to W7 Forums

Try this:

icacls <path> /grant "NT Service\trustedinstaller:(f)"

where <path> is the location to which you want to apply the changes to the permission. For safety reasons, please use the absolute and not relative path here.

I sure appreciate the help.

It Worked!

I spent hours on this, and that's all it was? An NT prefix in Win 7.

Many thanks,
