    Arrow Change permissions of a folder?

    It is easy in .Net but I would like it that my app will run anywhere hence I am aiming to try it in assembly though I have no idea on where to start, any help?

    One of ASM's main weaknesses is portability so if that's the main reason you want to use ASM then you'd better rethink it.

    Java is the most portable language today.

    C++ programmers will dismiss you as a cretinous simpleton for your inability to keep track of pointers chained 6 levels deep and Java programmers will pillory you for buying into the evils of Microsoft. Meanwhile C# programmers will get paid just a little bit more than you for writing exactly the same code and VB6 programmers will continue to whitter on about "footprints". - FunkyDexter

    x86 is quite portable, but you can use any unmanged language, it will probably be easier. If you still want to do it in assembly I'll try and help.

    I'm curious...why would you want to change folder permissions using ASM anyways ?
