# Vista won't let me save a backup of applicationHost.config

I am trying to make some changes in the applicationHost.config file on Windows Vista, and an important step is to back the file up in case I screw it up. Well, it won't let me save a copy in the

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\config\

folder!

I get the following error:

C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config.bak
You don’t have permission to save in this location.
Contact the administrator to obtain permission.

Would you like to save in the [loggedinuser] folder instead?


I'd contact the administrator, except for the fact that I am him! That is to say that the account I am using is the Administrator account. I don't know for sure how to give myself permission to save stuff in this folder. I tried to give myself permission to be able to what I needed, but it told me Access Denied. The folder properties says that the members of the Administrators group has full control, and when I look at my user account it says that I am an Administrator.

Any suggestions?
