Writable Protected Storage Service for Win7

Protected Storage Service for Windows Vista,Windows 7,Windows 2008,Windows 2008 R2
 
According to MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb432403(VS.85).aspx
[Protected Storage (Pstore) is available for use in Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000. It is only available for read-only operations in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista, but may be unavailable in subsequent versions. Pstore uses an older implementation of data protection. Developers are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the stronger data protection provided by the CryptProtectData and CryptUnprotectData functions.]
 
So if you would like to use legacy software which saves password with Protected Storage in Vista or newer Windows, it may fail to work.
 
This package will replace the read-only Protected Storage service with read-write enabled version.
 
HOW TO USE:
1. Extract the zip file to a directory
2. run Command Prompt (cmd.exe) as administrator
3. run setup.bat in the Command Prompt
4. reboot windows
5. check Protected Storage service to see whether it runs ok
