    Microsoft utility 'subinacl.msi'

    Can someone tell me if the Microsoft utility 'subinacl.msi' will work for W10.
    I've made a bit of a mess of my permissions I think. I have a MSI Nightblade with a 2 x mSATA boot drive for Windows and major apps, and a HDD for everything else.
    Most things seem OK, but some programs don't run. I'm told to login with administrator privileges and try again. This is for an old program that worked previously on another W10 box.
    I figured a utility like subinacl.msi may put things back to normal, if it works for 10.
    Any ideas please.

    I hope you solved your problem in the mean time but still:

    Yes it works fine under W10 not sure if it will help with your particular problem though.

    After installing 'subinacl.msi' open an admin command prompt and run the following by pasting it into the command box:

    @echo off
    title Resetting ACLs...
    cd /d "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
    echo Resetting ACLs...
    echo (this may take several minutes to complete)
    echo ==========================================================================
    echo System Drive...
    subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    echo Windows Directory...
    subinacl /subdirectories %windir%\*.* /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    echo ==========================================================================
    echo FINISHED.
    echo Press any key to exit . . .
    pause >NUL
    Alternatively, you can save the above text as a batch file by opening notepad and paste it there then saving it and changing the .txt extension to .bat. Remember to run it with admin rights though.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I still have an issue or two, but I'll give it a go when I can.
