We have not seen any problems with users having full control over this
folder. The only problem I could see happening is that a user may delete
some or all of the contents in C:\Millennium (perhaps trying to be
helpful and "cleaning up" their hard drive!) This would be quickly
remedied by reinstalling the client software however. I doubt that this
will be a problem here.
You shouldn't grant full control to C:\Millennium, but only "Modify",
"Read & Execute", "List Folder Contents", "Read", & "Write", to
C:\Millennium\jardir and C:\Millennium\resources. That way, end-users
cannot delete the program files, but only the preferences. If they do
that, those files will just be downloaded the next time that Millennium
is started. If you grant them "Full Control", they can change the
security on the folders as well.
Windows Help has an informative matrix of permissions under the heading
"File and Folder permissions".
