winndx icacls.exe interupt
« on: January 09, 2022, 07:41:48 PM »
When launching windx cs, windows is prompting to allow authorization to run "icacls.exe"
This is something new.
Anyone know why this is happening and how to prevent it?

This should only happen when the WindX is out of date and needs to be updated. 

We internally call icacls.exe to enable permissions on the WindX install directory so we can replace/update the files

Solved problem.
Windx was installed in a folder called: "C:\windx\"
removed this and re-installed to the Pvxplus default folder.
All working OK now.
Must have been an old registry entry that was preventing access.
