How to get folder permissions?

Hi,



I'm interested in testing the access rights and security permissions of a folder on a windows 7 computer.



There seems to be a command line to get his (cacls) but I was wondering if I could use some functions in TC scripts to do this.



Thanks,

  • Hi Matthieu,



    TestComplete does not contain any specific means to get/check folder permissions, so you should either execute command-line tools (like mentioned by you) and analyse their output or (for example) search for WMI samples that will do the same.
