TakeControl: Change Log
Initial release of TakeControl. This version allows you to take control of individual files/directories or the entire directory content at once.
Starting with this version of TakeControl, you can not only give yourself permission to access files and directories, but you also has the ability to provide the same access to everyone (any user). This new feature is extremely helpful for file servers with network shared files and directories. The following two interfaces are added to help you accomplish this task.
Minor bug fix to the installation/uninstallation batch file and the shortcuts. The bug fix allows TakeControl to be installed and used on all international versions of Windows XP and Vista.
Minor bug fix, where the "Public Access" shortcuts were still pointing to the "Take Control" programs.
Minor bug fix to make the software more robust for users that doesn't have a defined temp path.
Fixed a bug that prevented you from taking control of an entire drive. With this new version, you can drag-and-drop an entire drive onto TakeControl to change the permission of the entire drive content.
Fixed a bug where TakeControl could not handle '&' character in file and directory names. This new version will have no problem handling the '&' character.
Microsoft Windows 8 made its digital rights management even more strict. Even if your user account has administrator rights, the programs you execute do not execute with that privilege by default. That means TakeControl no longer works on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1
So we have updated the latest version of TakeControl to elevate its privilege up to the administrator level when you run it. This latest version of TakeControl works on Microsoft Windows 8.
The previous version of TakeControl spawns multiple windows to change owner and permission of files. The new windows would take focus away from your primary task, meaning you can't do any work while TakeControl is changing permission on large number of files.
In this new version, we hid the new windows, therefore, you can continue to work while TakeControl processes the files in the background.
Found some special cases with file names that TakeControl couldn't process. With this update, TakeControl could handle a variety of special cases in file names.
There was an one character typo in one of the scripts that causes an obscure bug. Fixed it in this version.
Made a few fallacies in the last bug fix release. Those fallacies has been fixed in this bug fix release.
Found a bug in "GiveEveryoneFullPermission.bat", which called the wrong script. This bug has been fixed in this version.
Microsoft made an operating system change in Windows 10 that prevented TakeControl to work fully. Detected it in the latest version of Windows 10 Home. Therefore, I updated one of the affected scripts to resolve it.
Found Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Home operates different, causing several scripts to fail on Windows 10 Pro. Update the software to be more reliable across different versions of Windows.
