    Exclamation New update (KB970789) released for Windows 7 RC




    In the English version of Windows 7 Release Candidate (build 7100) 32-bit Ultimate, the folder that is created as the root folder of the system drive (<var>%SystemDrive%</var>) is missing entries in its security descriptor. One effect of this problem is that standard users such as non-administrators cannot perform all operations to subfolders that are created directly under the root. Therefore, applications that reference folders under the root may not install successfully or may not uninstall successfully. Additionally, operations or applications that reference these folders may fail.
    For example, if a folder is created under the root of the system drive from an elevated command prompt, this folder will not correctly inherit permissions from the root of the drive. Therefore, some specific operations, such as deleting the folder, will fail when they are performed from a non-elevated command prompt.

    Furthermore, the missing security descriptor entries protect non-admin file operations directly under the root.
    This problem occurs because the English version of Windows 7 Release Candidate 32-bit Ultimate incorrectly sets access control lists (ACLs) on the root.
    The hotfix is released through Windows Update. For those customers who are affected by this problem, the fix is available through Windows Update: http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate
