Cant set an owner to file....

Hello, guys.

Im trying to set owner to file using SetFileSecurity. Well, lets start:

1) I tried to use SetSecurityDescriptorOwner( ,NULL, ) - after SetFileSecurity it returns error 5 (no access). So I got SeTakeOwnershipPrivilege rights and after SFS received error 1338... Invalid security decriptor.... WHY?

2) When I used instead of NULL a SID, taken from MY user name, after SFS I received error 1307 (This sid cant be an owner of this object)...

3) Only when I used "Administrators" group name (BTW, how to get this via CreateWellKnownSid?), it worked...

Please, help me...

Thanks, MBentefor.
