Follow-up Comment #13, bug #63129 (project octave):

playing around with the latest stable build (29 sep 2022, Octave 7.2.1    (hg
id: 96ad887ae4f8), so not with this last change)  just confirming what
everyone else said below.  I didn't notice permission changes anywhere else.

will verify after the next buildbot cycle picks up markus's change that it's
fixed on my system.

for everyone caring to do cleanup, the following commands run from a command
prompt with Administrative privileges** will reset the permissions to

cd %USERPROFILE%\Appdata\Local
ICACLS Temp /reset /T /C


after which the Temp folder and all files/subfolders should revert to the
windows default permissions.

(shouldn't be needed here, but if the above command doesn't work, you may need
to first 'take ownership' of the files by running 


is something we should advertise more broadly?

** Click on the Start button, type CMD, select Run as Administrator
