¿What d'you mean with "sharing a folder"? A folder is only a container where you can put files on it; any VB application deals with files, whereas folder handling is responsibility of operating system.

¿Is that what you're referring to, or I'm missing the point?

I guess I should have clarified more.  We have a client/server application.  The installation of the server needs to share the folder that the user installs to so that the client can access it through a UNC path.  We would like to do this programatically rather than have the user do it.
