This is one of the file that have special protection on modern Windows systems.

It's owned by a special "TrustedInstaller" user account, so only Windows own installer (and Windows updates) can modify that file.

And there is good reason for this

AFAIK you can take ownership of such files with some ACL trickery and then modify them.

But first of all: Why do you want to modify that file ???

My Plugins: StdUtils | NSISList | CPUFeatures | ExecTimeout | KillProc
