FileSetAttribute in C:\Program Files?

3 posts in this topic

I need to change a file from read only that's installed with an MSI installer. So far I can run the MSI silently, but I'm wondering how I change the file attribute of a file in

C:\Program Files (x86)\Program\file

with FileSetAttribute when it says the file match can't contain spaces ...?

The helpfile needs an update, the function works with both directories with spaces in their names, and filenames containing spaces.

BTW you can use this way too.

RunWait("cmd.exe /c " & "attrib -R -H -S " & """" & @ProgramFilesDir&"\file\somefile.exe" & """",@ScriptDir,@SW_HIDE)

or

RunWait("cmd.exe /c " & "attrib -R -H -S " & """" & "%programfiles%\file\somefile.exe" & """",@ScriptDir,@SW_HIDE)

This works for me in win xp sp2
