Whenever my Delphi 3 app tries to open and read a file which is set to "Read-Only" mode, it gives a "File Access Denied" error. I'm opening and reading these files as simple text files. I only want to read from these files, not write to them...so why would I get an error trying to read from them? I know one solution is to change the file's properties to 'Archive', but is there a way programmatically to successfully read these 'read-only' files?
P.S: My 'automatic notification' thing is not working whenever you guys answer my questions...how can I fix this?
