    Permissions In Win2k Advance Server

    Hi to everyone, just a question for the gurus out there. It is possible to apply a permission to a files so that it can be executed but not be read. ie. say i had a batch file that needs to be executed by a user, but i only want him to run the file not be able to look at the contains inside. Any suggestions would be very helplful. oh yeah this is for a win2k adv server running on ntfs partition.
    Never look twice unless your prepared to be caught

    Unfortunately this cannot be done on Windows. It's only possible on Un*x like systems.

    Setting Special Access..... and putting only X (execute) permissions will also prevent the batch file from running.

    DaCloud: You can set up special permissions in Win2k Advanced Server because it runs on NTFS. Right click on the file, go to properties, click the security tab, then click advanced. On the permissions tab you can click view/edit. (make sure you have selected the user to give access to that file) This screen will allow you to set custom permissions on that file.

    The person with whom you are trying to give rights should be able to read and execute the file if you give him the following permission:

    Traverse Folder / Execute File
