 operating system and a sytem right issue that can't be solved easily; as
 there are quite a lot of different right managements out there in the
 windows world. so I would class it rather an enhancement than a defect.
 > It is. In *NIX world that equals shipping a package (RPM, deb) with
 missing go+R permissions. This is not a limitation of Windows. This is an
 error in Wingrass installer not setting correct permissions on files.
 Changed the summary to better reflect the scope of this issue.
 > I am not familiar with NSIS and Wingrass, but as grass70.py file was
 affected, I would look on some of the magic touching that particular file,

 it could be that changing some content in the file by L884 etc. may change
 the permission rights on some windows systems.

 for setting permission rights:
