Re: Copying to System32
The easiest way would be to use the system file checker utility.
- Click start
- Find command prompt
- Right-click command prompt, click run as administrator
- Type the following command and press enter to repair only that file:
- To scan all system files and repair them as needed:
Alternatively, you would have to change security settings on the file to
update it. Specifically, you would need to take ownership of the file, then
give yourself or the administrators group modify permissions to the file.
Then you could replace the file, assuming it was not in use by any programs.
Once it is replaced, you should then change the permissions on the replaced
file to what they were on the original file and then change the owner back
to "NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller" so that the security of the file is back to
the default, optimal settings.
