Have your Network Administrator add that program to the users profile.

or, are yo the Net Admin, and do not know how to give permissions?

Is the Network a Win NT network w/ Win95 clients?

is this a windows 95/98 workgroup without a windows NT machine as server?

if you right-click on the folder containing the label program and select "sharing" (on the machine the program is actually residing on) do you see "shared as" and does it list a name for the folder after that? it should if not select "shared as", select the appropriate access type, most likely full access, and ok it.

also, if you right-click network neighborhood, and select properties, then go to the access control tab, does it show "share level" or "user level" access control. if it's "user level" you need a pc with each person's user account set up on . I find usually in a small workgroup, unless you have a need for restricting a particular person or persons, "share leve access" control is usually the best.

Best of luck,

Rick

Have you checked to see if the Label program is network compatible?  It may be that.  Or, there is a setting in the Label Program that allows additional access by "adding" lisc.  Does this program operate in DOS?  What is the name of the program?  Version? Is the other person logging in on the exact same machine?  If not, then (depending on the software) you must share the folder.  Go to your Network Neighborhood and right click on it.  Select properties. Make sure that you have "File..share" is loaded.  If not, Click on the Add button and select Service.  From there, load File...share for MS Networks.  Now, go back to the drive that your Label software is loaded from and share it.  By, right clicking and selecting Share "user level."  Go to her PC and double click network neighborhood and see if it is listed.  It may take a min for all to show.  Give it a few minutes and select refresh from the Menu bar (view,refresh).  Should show here.  Once shown, she will have to right click on it and select Map Nework drive.  Depending on the Software, you may have to have it loaded on her PC as well and only share the data folder.  Would have to know what the Software is.  Another thing, does she see anything else in Network Neighborhood? Are you running more then 3 PC's on the Network with a hub?  Have you checked the Patch Cables?  Is there a blinking light on the back your network card?  In order for us to assist you in this endeavor, we need more specifics about your situation.

Whek,

What we usually do is to post our suggestions as comments, then when the problem is solved, the person who gave the solution reposts his comments as a question. this keeps the question from being "locked" and allows the questioner the opportunity to choose the suggestion he prefers.
