I deleted everything in the security tab for a shared drive and canceled it in the middle of propagation.

I'm not not able to even close the window without "an error occurred while applying security information to: \(shared folder) access is denied"

So far I tried this:

  1. I get access denied

  2. with this I get cdcd is not recognized as an internal or external command + I did install subinacl and did use (x86) as I'm on a 64bit os

Based on your question, unless you are working on registry permissions, subinacl is the wrong command to use, and will make things more complicated.
