Give Users Full Control to Staff Directory
Posted by Nick Perotti on 09 August 2018 05:58 PM

There are certain applications that will not run for non administrators on our machines due to not having access to the staff profile. Here is a workaround to allow non administrators to have access to the directory.

This will work for applications such as Johnson Control Launcher / Metasys

1.) Run Command Prompt as Administrator.

2.) Run the following command in bold (You can also copy and paste): icacls "C:\users\staff" /grant Users:(OI)(CI)F /T

3.) It will then proceed to change the permissions for the directory. In this case, it failed to process 1 file and it was a file in the app directory, but it should fix your application issue.
