The AccessControl plugin for NSIS provides a set of functions related to Windows NT access control list (ACL) management.

Usage Example

  AccessControl::SetFileOwner \
    "C:\test.txt" "Waterloo\Mathias"
 
# Make the directory "$INSTDIR\database" read write accessible by all users
  AccessControl::GrantOnFile \
    "$INSTDIR\database" "(BU)" "GenericRead + GenericWrite"
 
# Give all authentificated users (BUILTIN\Users) full access on
# the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Vendor\SomeApp
  AccessControl::GrantOnRegKey \
    HKLM "Software\Vendor\SomeApp" "(BU)" "FullAccess"
 
# Same as above, but with a numeric string SID
  AccessControl::GrantOnRegKey \
    HKLM "Software\Vendor\SomeApp" "(S-1-5-32-545)" "FullAccess"
