    Is anyone know how to implement permissions under "c:\programfiles\windowsapps\packagefolder" in msix package.

    Thanks a lot, but you haven't described how to reverse it (get back non-allowance).

      @SARAFHA: I have described that at the end of step-2 (read the note)

    Step 5 needs "\*" at the end of the path. It should be

    icacls "%ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps\*" /grant Administrators:F /t

    Otherwise, it will process $RECYCLE.BIN and other folders.

    Followed steps but cannot remove Encryption – "An error occurred applying attributes to file". I can view files but can't modify.

      Sadly I have the same issue – this is not enough to view and edit encrypted files. :( Looks like that is going to be a headache.

        @nottud: Try the procedure in Part 2 in Windows Safe.

    I now have access to the folder and subcontents, but I still get permission required when trying to copy a file.

      @Allen Gresham: Thank you for the information. The article is updated to bypass the permissions issue. Please follow again the steps at Part-2 and inform me for the result.

    Number 4 should be
    icacls "%ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps" /grant Administrators:F /t
    (lowercase /t, otherwise it will give an error message…)

    Unfortunately it does not work, commands work – but access is denied every time you try to modify file in WindowsApps directory… Any solution for that?

      @Mark: Are you logged in as Admin? When you try to assign full access rights (part 2-icacls) you replace the %username% with your own user-name?
