  • Font folder permissions in Vista

    All, ive got a group of students here that need to be able to install Fonts. To that end ive give the Student group write access to C:\Windows\Fonts

    via computer config>windows security>File System

    Policy is linked to the OU with the PCs inquestion andenable but does still not seem to be applying. It is applying succesfully to XP Pro SP3 machines

    Any help is hugely appreciated.

    What service pack? UAC? Event logs?
