Hi All, new to this. I followed this document to create osquery python extensions. this works in linux but when i try to do it in windows it just fails to register the extension. Im not sure what i did wrong, since the only error i receive is " Cannot create extension process:". I have changed the file permissions as per osquery documentation and also ran osqueryi in --allow_unsafe mode (for the time being). Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

(I think this question was asked in two places) so for posterity, I think the issue is that osquery is also checking the directory permissions. osquery wants to make sure the file cannot be deleted and recreated by an unprivileged user

@theopolis whats the correct permission? i ran the commands listed on osquery documentation. i also tried granting inheritance and full control from the parent directory but all does not work
