by using kernel32.dll I as normal user who started the mt4 that creates a file which at the end is set read-only:
SetFileAttributesA(TerminalPath() + "\\experts\\files\\" + fileName, FILE_ATTRIBUTE_READONLY);
But if I click on the Attributes of the file I see that for the users:
SYSTEM: FULL ACCESS
me as User (and owner): FULL ACCESS
me as root: FULL ACCESS
Home Users: READ, EXECUTE
Administrators: FULL ACCESS
So the file is NOT protected for being overwritten or deleted if a program (mt4) that I started wants to do that?
Very tricky of Win7 is the illusion that the files ARE protected - if you select them all - right mouse click you can see they are all right protected - but ONLY against Home-Users-group tat do not exist ion my pc - fantastic.
Hoe can I set the write-protection by a program out of mt4?
Anybody with a solution - other than that I do it file by file with the mouse - why do I have pc with programs if I have do do it myself anyway???

I dont think the read only file attribute has worked since Windows 95, you have to do it with permissions, it is confusing I messed up my whole computer one time by trying to change file permissions.

b) from mt4 - script-file?
Thanks in advance,
