Setup Utilities

There are three Windows utility programs the FineBuild relies on, and which must exist in the \Windows\System32 folder. These are CACLS, NTRIGHTS, and REG.

A copy of these utilities is included in the FineBuild \Build Scripts_ folder, and if required it will be copied from that folder to the \Windows\System32 folder.

These utilities form part of the Windows 2003 Resource Kit, and can be used on all operating systems from Windows XP through to Windows 2012 R2. It is recommended that each site copy their own version of these utilities into the FindBuild \Build Scripts folder, so there is an assurance that the utilities have come from a source that is trusted.

Download the Windows 2003 Resource Kit from Install it on a Sandbox computer and copy the following utilities to the \Build Scripts folder.
