Windows 7 and setting file permisions across the C drive
We've encountered an issue with Cubase 4 (which according to Steinburg is compatible with but doesn't fully support w7) which only occurs when a user is logged in. Logging in as an administrator does not replicate the problem which leads us to believe its a file permission. Traditionally, we've 'fudged' the issue in XP by giving 'C' drive 'everyone - full control' and setting it to propagate downwards. This has also fixed several other issues with edu-software. The C drive is hidden from the user by GP so they can't mess about with anything.
Obviously windows 7 by default doesn't allow certain folders such as program files and windows to be given this type of unrestricted permission. Is there any way we can set 'everyone-FC' on an entire W7 C drive so we can provide a solution for this? GP maybe?

Does it need to write to particular folders. The best way would be to grant modify rights to the folders needed.

Have you tried using procmon to understand what cubase is doing?
That way you can be more specific about the permissions you give.
