While I know that CHMOD is impossible in Windows, I do have a problem with permissions.

I'm running XAMPP on Windows 8 Release Preview and I'm trying to install ModenaCam. However, I get an error message which tells me that two files are not writable (they are 666) and they need to be 777.

The permissions for the files are correct (full control for everyone, owner is everyone), but I can't get this thing to work!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
