[thelist] CHMOD equiv. on Windows Host

As far as I know, security permissions can only be set by the
administrator of a Win server.

My experience with web hosting companies is that they'll set the
permissions to run ASP scripts, but little else. So, if you need to
write to a database or use File System Object to write a file, you'll
have to ask the hosting company to set those permissions for you.

I usually set up one or two sub-directories within the website where I
only stick the database(s) or .txt files I need to write to and have
the permissions changed only on those sub-directories.
