Making a Project Read-Only

This section describes how to make a project folder read-only by modifying the file security settings for selected users and/or user groups. The read-only project configuration is identical whether you are using Windows 2003 Server, Windows XP, or Windows 2000.


To make a project read-only:

  1. In Windows Explorer, select the project folder you want to make read-only. By default project folders are located in the folder
  2. C:\ProgramData\Citect\CitectSCADA 7.10

  3. Right-click the folder and choose Properties from the context menu. The Properties dialog appears.
  4. Select the Security tab.
  5. Select the user and/or user group you want to modify security settings for.
  6. Click Advanced. The Advanced Security Settings dialog appears for the selected user/user group for the project folder.
  7. Verify that the user or user group you want to modify permissions settings for is selected.

  8. Click Edit to display the Permission Entry dialog box.
  9. Click Clear All to clear the current selections and then select the Allow check box for the following options:
  10. Click OK.
  11. Click Apply to apply the permissions to the selected user/user group, and then click OK to dismiss the Advanced Security Settings dialog.
  12. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box.

The project folder has now been specified as read-only for the selected user(s) and/or user group(s).
