Changing user access to a file

By brucelc22 ·
How do you change the access rights to a .exe file so that everyone can use it.
Use to be able to shift right click and do a run as but now even that doesn't come up now.

On an nt/win2k machine right click select properties > security > permissions
and add the everyone group and give them read permissions (RX, which translates to read and execute).

Good Luck

To enable the RunAs/Secondary Logon Service on a Windows XP Computer

Log on to the computer as Administrator, or log on as a user with administrative permissions.

Right-click the My Computer icon, and then click Manage .

In Computer Management, expand the Services and Applications node, and then click Services .

In the details pane, right-click the Secondary Logon service, and then click Properties .

In the Properties dialog box, set Startup type to Automatic , and then clickStart .

After the computer starts the service, click OK to close the Properties dialog box, and then close Computer Management.

The RunAs service is now started and running.

As a note:
If you try to start a program, such as an MMC console or Control Panel item, from a network location using the Run As command, it could fail if the credentials that are used to connect to the network share are different from the credentials that are used to start the program. The credentials that are used to run the program may not be able to gain access to the same network share. - delete the share map a share using RunAs (now that it's started) and run your program.

The RunAs/Secondary Logon services accept only password authentication. If policies require smart card logon, then the Run As command will not work.
