Scripting changes to resource permissions in Windows

Earlier today, I needed to include some registry permissions changes within a command line script that I was writing. Microsoft knowledge base article 245031 discusses a method using the regini.exe resource kit tool for Windows NT 4.0; however, for Windows 2000, XP and Server 2003 there is the SubInACL utility (subinacl.exe) which is far more powerful and much easier to use, enabling administrators to obtain security information about files, registry keys, and services, and transfer this information from user to user, from local or global group to group, and from domain to domain.
