How to set Full Control & Write Unlock to a file from C++/CLI? The reason why I want this is:
I'm creating a log in form. While clicking a button, I'm writing the log in information to a file(to implement "Remember Me" functionality). While creating installer for this application, this works fine under Win XP. But did not work with Windows 7. There I've to manually set Full Control to the file. Users of my app won't like this. I used the following code to set Access control:

path = L"RememberMe.ini";

But this results in the following error:

error C3767: 'System::Security::AccessControl::ObjectSecurity::WriteUnlock': candidate function(s) not accessible

How to set access control from C++/CLI? or Can any one suggest an alternative solution to my problem?<br>I'm using Visual Studio 2008 Deployment Project to write setup file.<br>
