RAD Studio 10 Files Permissions Patch

For RAD Studio 10.x, 10.1.x and 10.2.x installations performed with the GetIt web based installer

This file permissions patch addresses an issue with the RAD Studio 10.x installation. The GetIt-based installers (up to but excluding RAD Studio 10.2.3 build 3231, made available in July 2018) copy files under the main application folder, most likely something like C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\1x.0\, using read-write or read-write-execute privileges instead of read or read-execute privileges as typical of the C:\Program Files (x86) subfolders. This issue is not present in the ISO Offline installer.

RAD Studio 10 Files Permissions Patch

For RAD Studio 10.x, 10.1.x and 10.2.x installations performed with the GetIt web based installer


This file permissions patch addresses an issue with the RAD Studio 10.x installation. The GetIt-based installers (up to but excluding RAD Studio 10.2.3 build 3231, made available in July 2018) copy files under the main application folder, most likely something like C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\1x.0\, using read-write or read-write-execute privileges instead of read or read-execute privileges as typical of the C:\Program Files (x86) subfolders. This issue is not present in the ISO Offline installer.


If you’ve installed any 10.x version using the GetIt-based online installer, we recommend downloading and applying the patch, as it will help prevent unintended modification of your installation.


This patch consists of a simple tool that scans the folders of your recent RAD Studio installations and updates the file permissions with more limited access, preventing modifications of those files without full administrator access or elevated access to the computer.


Alternatively, you can select the application folder and manually tune its permissions for increased security by removing the Modify and Write permissions and setting the files as read only (preserving the execution privilege, if assigned).


There were no publicly reported bugs related to this issue.
