    Help Setting User Permissions for a Program File.

    Hi, I have two networked PCs. On PC1, I have a program file (.exe) that I want PC2 to be able to access, open and use, but not copy or move from it's location. What would be the best permission settings to adjust on PC1 to protect the file? Thx.

    You can't stop copying. To run an executable you need read/execute authority. If you can read it you can copy it.

    What are you trying to achieve? Perhaps you could run the program as a service.
