Can someone explain why it is so utterly hard to delete the winbuilder080 folder? it keeps on giving me permission errors, even though I am logged in as the single administrator on this Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit laptop, and, I have also removed it's inheritable permissions and changed ownership to my user and all of that, I still can't delete the freakin folder..........

why?

I found the solution, it seems to be a problem with the windows permission thing, in which you need to edit permission for folders separately, but I found a kernel mode driver filter that bypasses NTFS security, although in Vista and Windows 7 you need to disable Driver SIgnature Enforcement by pressing F8 at boot time.

it was some kind of permission problem, and even though I clicked EVERYTHING possible in the properties menu and I changed ownership and inheritable ownerships to folders, I was STILL not able to delete the annoying thing...

What seems to be wrong with the boot-land server these days? it is so slow...

this thing with deleting the folder keeps on happening to me.
It is more the Temp folder that I am trying to delete and I can't...
I get the error in the screenshot

I am an administrator part of the administrator group with everything needed but it still won't delete....
I need to use the AcessGain filter again to wipe it out due to NTFS security....
www.hobeanu.com/blog is where you find it in case you need it...

If you are running winbuilder as an administrator then its quite likely that the process you are using to delete folders created by winbuilder will also need to run as administrator. I run my file manager, TotalCommander, as administrator and have never had any problems deleting folders created by winbuilder on win7 x64.

First:
There is an open question from first post for a "Why":
This usually occurs when you inside a project mounted a wim with Imagex, but aborted the project (out of whatever reason) and did not unmount the wim properly.

Second:
If you do not have Total commander like me:
For me in 95% directly, in 5% with previous boot, works:

Go into cmd window
and use "RD <folder> /s /q"

one question
what about the User Account Control (UAC)?
in my experience to disable UAC on Vista or Windows 7 host is a must
for successfully build any project

Not on windows 7. I run with UAC enabled. Along as I run winbuilder as admin I have no problems.
