How can I open a typed file on a read-only drive and read it ? (I tried with the assignfile-reset methods but an error like "file access refused" happens, even if I only want to read it.) HELP!!

Hmm. You could use
  "TFileStream.Create('file.ext',fmOpenRead or fmShareDenyNone)"
However, you said "typed file", so I don't know if this helps...

Set Filemode to fmOpenRead before calling ResetFile. Remember to set it back again once you are finished.

CHeers,
