C:\ProgramData files editing using administrator profile.

Copper Contributor

Dear All,


we've got a software developed using .net and installed using an administrator profile on a Windows 10 client in a domain.

On the first execution, an xml configuration file has been created in c:\programdata\..\filename.xml with the same administrator user's profile.


If we try to edit the xml file with another user's administrator profile, we are asked to save another file because the update of the existing one is not permitted.


We are able instead to update the file executing notepad from an administrator powershell session, but we need that all administrators's group users on the client can edit and save the file.


Please, we need support to solve this problem, any suggestion is really appreciate.


Thanks and kind regards.
