The ChangeSecurityPermissions method changes the security permissions for the logical file specified in the object path. If the logical file is actually a directory, then ChangeSecurityPermissions will act recursively, changing the security permissions of all the files and sub-directories the directory contains. ChangeSecurityPermissions returns an integer value of 0 if the permissions were changed, and any other number to indicate an error.

It returns one of the following integer values:


UInt32 ReturnValue = ChangeSecurityPermissions(Object SecurityDescriptor, UInt32 Option)
