I’m trying to use win32/file to set permission on a file, but I can’t
seem
to get it working. Here’s what I’ve tried

require “win32/file”
File.set_permissions(“C:\foo.txt”, {“Domain\username” => 2032127})

and I get this error

:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/win32-file-0.5.5/lib/win32/file.rb:212:in
`set_permissions’: The access control list (ACL) structure is invalid.
(ArgumentError)

I can read permissions I just can’t set them.

In the current version, it means the given account do not exist.
The misleading message must be modified.

Inserting the following line at file.rb #158 will solve this problem.

if sid.strip == “”
raise ArgumentError, ‘Account does not exist’
end

I can read permissions I just can’t set them.

Try this:

perm = File.get_permissions(“C:\foo.txt”)
p perm
File.set_permissions(“C:\foo.txt”,perm)
