How to: Remove Permission Sets

Use the .NET Framework Configuration tool (Mscorcfg.msc) to remove a permission set at a particular level.

To remove a permission set using Mscorcfg.msc

  1. Run the .NET Framework Configuration tool (Mscorcfg.msc).

    1. In Control Panel, open Administrative Tools.

    2. Double-click Microsoft .NET Framework <version> Configuration.

    Alternatively, you can run the tool from a command prompt:

    • In the .NET Framework 1.0 and 1.1, type the following at the command prompt: %Systemroot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\versionNumber\Mscorcfg.msc.

    • In the .NET Framework 2.0, start the SDK Command Prompt and type mscorcfg.msc.

  2. Expand the Runtime Security Policy node.

  3. Expand the node for the policy level you want to remove a permission set from.

  4. Expand the Permission Sets node.

  5. Right-click the permission set you want to remove and choose Delete.


    You cannot remove built-in permission sets or permission sets that are associated with a code group.
