APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Visual InterDev 1.0 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q175252

SYMPTOMS

Using the Web Permissions dialog box to reset the permissions to the same as the root Web will have no effect on the permission settings for the Web.

In other words, if you select the Web Permission item on the Project menu and then select "Use unique permissions for this," you will not be able to use the dialog box to change the unique permissions back to match the root Web. If you select the option "Use Same Permissions as Root Web" in the Web Permission dialog box and click OK, nothing will happen.

RESOLUTION

To grant the same permissions as the root Web to your project, use the Copy Web command on the Project menu to copy the content of your Web to a new project on the same server. This copies your content and sets your permissions to be the same as the root Web.

Alternatively, if you have Microsoft FrontPage version 2.0 or later installed, you can open the Web project in Microsoft FrontPage and use the Permissions item on the Tools menu to launch the permissions dialog box. Select the option "Use Same Permissions as Root Web" and click Apply. Then click OK to close the dialog box.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This bug has been fixed in Visual InterDev 6.0.

MORE INFORMATION

Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Open a Web project.
  2. From the Project menu, select Web Permissions.
  3. Select "Use unique permission for the Web," and click Apply.
  4. Set some permissions for the Web, then click OK.
  5. Select Web Permissions from the Project menu.
  6. Select "Use Same permission as root Web," click Apply and then close the dialog box.

After clicking OK, the Web will still have unique permissions.
