Windows 7 Access denied Issues
In most cases, if you receive "Access denied" in Windows 7, it is permission issues. Here are some cases.
Q: I just installed a 3D engine called panda- something that took me minutes to get running on XP and linux. Unfortunately I can not run the samples via the command line using "python filename". I have taken ownership of the folder, gone through all the security/privacy options but am still getting "python: cannot open file 'filename': [Errno 13]: permission denied. It seems every day I am running into these sorts of problems which I never saw on XP.
How can I solve this problem (I am assuming it is a security issue with python so maybe I should direct this question to a python forum too?
And how can I have a more usable system that doesn't take all these extra steps to get simple things done inside windows 7?
A: Which folder is it trying to access? Some system components folders cannot be modified even after we take ownership.
You may try to set the program to run as administrator. Please right-click on the file, click on Compatibility tab. Select to run this program as administrator. Also you may select to run the program in Windows XP SP3.
Q: I have a Windows 7 system that is in a Workgroup. I have shared the C
root with a sharename called CDrive. I am trying to access this share with a
Windows XP system that is enrolled in a Domain.
A: I have found answer to your question. Solution is realy easy just a
one key in registry:
ANTIVIRUS Software!!!! I had a copy of my old windows harddrive on a non-OS drive that had a “Windows folder” and even though I took ownership and set the correct permissions, I couldn’t delete the files. “ACCESS DENIED”. I turned off Norton and was able to delete everything. No unlocker or lockhunter required. I also remove trusted installer from the permissions list, but this didn’t help with antivirus on.
Case 4: If you get these error when access Windows 7 shared folders:
"Access is denied" or "You might not have permission to use this network
resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have
access permissions." you may try to modify this registry key.
Case 6: I found that if I right-click C:, click properties, click security, click advanced, click owner, click edit, select my username, and check 'replace owner on subcontainers and objects', and click apply, I get no more annoying 'access denied' messages..
