Error 3051 Couldn't open Access file

I have an application written in VB4, and this app has a MS Access 97 database. When I run the app that try to open the Access database, the error prompt with msg '3051 Couldn't open file ......MDB". I try to manually open the database and found that it is readonly. I do not have the VB app source code, and I do not have othe admin login as well..

If you can't change the read-only property through Windows Explorer then you have to find someone who has permission to do so.
