Copying files to Windows 7 C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86)

Recommended Posts



I've tried a number of different options in trying to copy over 4 files to the Program Files directory, when run within Windows 7. I have turned UAC down to the lowest level, with no success. I've also tried adding:



Neither of which seem to be doing anything. I'm receiving no prompts, etc. I have confirmed that the locations are correct and I'm using fully qualified paths. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

FileCopy(@ScriptDir & "Restore User State.xml", @ProgramFilesDir & "Restore User State.xml", 1)
