I'm looking for windows groups names in german language, due I have to configure something with accesschk on Windows 10 Pro. I get errors which tell me that the names are not valid.

Maybe here are some german speakers which could know and translate these technical terms ?

These groups I couldn't translate:

Authenticated Users = Hauptbenutzer ?

Interactive = ?

This are the commands I needed to run :

accesschk -w -s -q -u Users "C:\Program Files"

accesschk -w -s -q -u Users "C:\Program Files (x86)"

accesschk -w -s -q -u Users "C:\Windows"

accesschk -w -s -q -u Everyone "C:\Program Files"

accesschk -w -s -q -u Everyone "C:\Program Files (x86)"

accesschk -w -s -q -u Everyone "C:\Windows"

accesschk -w -s -q -u "Authenticated Users" "C:\Program Files"

accesschk -w -s -q -u "Authenticated Users" "C:\Program Files (x86)"

accesschk -w -s -q -u "Authenticated Users" "C:\Windows"

accesschk -w -s -q -u Interactive "C:\Program Files"

accesschk -w -s -q -u Interactive "C:\Program Files (x86)"

accesschk -w -s -q -u Interactive "C:\Windows"
  • Doesn't accesschk take SIDs? Those are usually fixed. – user1686 May 23 '17 at 9:34
  • Perhaps SIDs would work too. It's okay it seems to work I found the names, within groups as users. – Tech-IO May 23 '17 at 10:34

These groups I couldn't translate:

Authenticated Users = Hauptbenutzer ?

Interactive = ?

You can use the Microsoft Language Portal to look up terminology translations:

Authenticated Users is Authentifizierte Benutzer

Interactive is Interaktiv

Interactive Users is Interaktiver Benutzer

Users is Benutzer

Everyone is Jeder

  • Thank you. It looks like I miss some groups in my OS, Jeder, Interaktiv, Authentifizierte Benutzer, at least the last one might be Administratoren ? – Tech-IO May 22 '17 at 20:38
  • Administrators is Administratoren – DavidPostill May 22 '17 at 20:50
  • are there language-neutral group names that I could use? I have a script that uses icacls to change file permissions. And it just failed in other pc because it is in German. This answer gave me a quick fix (Jeder instead of Everyone). But I would like to have my script actually portable. – elikesprogramming Feb 20 '18 at 10:13
