Grant Read-Write Permissions for the LandFX Folder (Single User)

Issue

You need to grant yourself (or another user) read/write permissions for the LandFX folder on the C: drive.

Looking for a way to share the LandFX folder on a network or office server? Please see our instructions for sharing the LandFX folder on your network.

 

 

Solution

 

Grant Permissions to the LandFX Folder

1. Open the C: drive on your (or the user's) computer. Right-click the LandFX folder.

Important: Make sure you're giving yourself permissions for the LandFX folder that's directly on the C: drive (C:/LandFX) – not the folder C:/Progam Files/LandFX.

 
Right-clicking LandFX folder on C drive

 

 

Properties menu option
2. Select Properties from the menu that opens.

 

 

3. The Properties dialog box will open.

 

 

 

Select the Security tab, and click Edit.

Properties dialog box, Security tab, Edit button

 

 

 

Permissions dialog box

4. The Permissions dialog box will open.

 

Under Group or User Names, select Everyone.

Don't see the Everyone option here?

Here's what to do >

Check the boxes in the Allow column to the right of Read and Write.

If these boxes were already checked when you opened this screen, your computer already has read-write permissions to the LandFX folder.

Click Apply to apply your changes. Then click OK.

 

 

 

5. Back in the Properties dialog box, verify that both the Read and Write entries have check marks in the Allow column.

 

 

Click Apply, then click OK.

Add the Everyone Option to the Permissions Dialog Box (If Necessary)

 

If you don't see the option for Everyone in the Permissions for LandFX dialog box (Step 4 above), you can easily add it by following the steps below.
