PermissionEx element

Sets ACLs on File, Registry, or CreateFolder. When under a Registry element, this cannot be used if the Action attribute's value is remove or removeKeyOnInstall. This element is only available when installing with MSI 5.0. For downlevel support, see the PermissionEx element from the WixUtilExtension.
