Hello and thanks for reading my post. The idea is that I want to run csc.exe without having to run it from it's folder location in cmd. So I tried using an elevated command prompt to make a hard symbolic link of csc.exe to my System32 folder. My OS is 8.1 pro.
In my Administrator Command Prompt:
>mklink /h c:\windows\system32 c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v4.0.30319\csc.exe
Access is denied.
So, I've checked my administrative privileges on my System32 folder. The permission is set to Special permission which is in this case is defined as Modify permission for the System32 folder, and Full control for all subfolders and files. Apparently I can't create a file within the system32 folder, but I can create a subfolder. When I try to modify the settings I just get greyed out options and can't do anything at all. I'm using Windows Defender, already tried changing permissions with WinDefender disabled.
If anyone has a solution I'll be very grateful.
