How do you get the directory Security tab in XP Home or XP Media Center Edition?

I work with XP Professional everywhere, and never needed the ability to change directory permissions on my home machine. Lately, I've been running into a massive headache with IIS and ASP.NET permissions.

"Security settings for XP Media Center Edition should be the same as pro as it is built on top of it. Go to any folder (or open Windows Explorer) then go to tools > folder options and under view, the last option should be ""Use simple folder sharing (Recommended)"". When this is disabled, you will get the security tab.

As for Windows XP Home, you shouldn't be having problems with IIS as it should not be running! However, I believe that the security tab is disabled in home edition, however you will most likely still be able to edit folder permissions by using XCACLS or a third party tool. I cannot really help further on home as - well - I have never used it :S"
