Question Change file permissions

How can I get the installer to change file permissions to give Everyone full control in the InstallDir? -Thanks Sandy

Do you mean, how do I let people change what is installed?

You need to have files in different sections with different section names:
Section "Install main dll files"
## Do stuff here ##
Section "Install image files"
## Do stuff here ##

Then you have a Components page, where the user can select/unselect which Sections to install.

You should also use Modern UI too (looks much nicer)
${NSISDIR}\Contrib\Modern UI

I think he means how do you change file access permitions in a Win NT based enviroment. First you need to find out how you could do this manualy and then try to convert it into an NSIS Script.

There is a plug-in that does this in the Archive. Search for it there using the search button or in the downloads page.
