    Well....I did an uninstall/reinstall today of Ultima Online....backed up my Desktop (containing profiles/macros for my characters) directory to my desktop of course, and after the install, slapped it back into the Ultima Online 2D directory and I got Access Denied all over the place when trying to browse the desktop directory that i pasted into the Ultima Online 2D directory.....and it's really annoying cause i have to go open each folder manually, Select All, then Right click, Set access to everyone, for EACH FOLDER and every file within each folder.....between 3-4 different "accounts" and different "servers" and 5 characters on each account, that's a lot of selecting, right clicking and setting to everyone access.....sooo....lol.

    On another forum, a regedit trick was posted to access the CACLS.exe file from the right click context menu to set the files/directories to "Everyone" and I wanted to know if it is possible to use a wildcard *.* in the following regedit. Something, that I could just right click the Ultima Online 2D directory, and set access to everyone, and it would set everyone access throughout all directories and files throughout.

    Code:
     Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\Reset_Permissions_to_Everyone]
    @="Reset Permissions to Everyone"
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\Reset_Permissions_to_Everyone\command]
    @="cacls.exe \"%L\" /G Everyone:F"
     
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\Shell\Reset Security]
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\Shell\Reset Security\command]
    @="cacls.exe \"%L\" /G Everyone:F"
    Is this possible? :X

    Ok. i solved my own problem :p and yes, the wildcard works/ed

    I used cacls.exe *.* /G EVERYONE:F and it worked. seems to be working fine. I just had to CD \Program Files\Ultima Online 2D\ from the C:\ prompt
