If possible, this function will give everyone access to read and write to the specified path.
On most operating systems (including Windows, OS X, and Linux), the execute permission flag/bit determines whether or not traversal is allowed when applied to a directory.
Using the SK_FLAGS_PERMISSIONS_FOLDERINHERIT flag and/or a Windows Registry path type is only supported in Windows. Therefore, using these in any other operating system will cause the function to fail and return SK_ResultCode.SK_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_OS.
On non-Windows, POSIX compatible operating systems (like OS X and Linux), the permissions are set without any regard to any prior permissions. So for example, if everyone is allowed to execute a file before calling this function, calling this function against that file without the SK_FLAGS_PERMISSIONS_ALLOWEXECUTE flag will result in nobody having access to execute that file. Additionally, permissions are never inherited or set recursively when applied to a directory.
All possible return values are included in the SK_ResultCode enumeration. Return codes to expect include:
|SK_ResultCode.SK_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENTS||Some or all of the arguments are invalid.|
|SK_ResultCode.SK_ERROR_COULD_NOT_OPEN_REGISTRY_KEY||An attempt to open a registry key failed.|
|SK_ResultCode.SK_ERROR_COULD_NOT_SET_PERMISSIONS||An attempt to set a file or registry key's permissions failed.|
|SK_ResultCode.SK_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_OS||The current operating system is not supported by this feature or function.|
