Outlook Denies permisson to import .pst file from win Xp to win 2k

Hi,

I had exported the personal folder from Windows Xp which is on a laptop and tried to import it ms office 2k,which is running on Win2k,  but i get an error saying "Persmisson for this operation is denied" I tried to check the permisson for the .pst files, it seemed to be ok with all the permissons set for read, write. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

After moving the file from the laptop, did you right-click the .pst file and on the PROPERTIES tab, remove the tick-mark next to "Read-Only" ?

Thanks,yes infact, I had done that. But the error keeps popping up. I can do the same process on computers where they run win 2k on both. Does it have anything to do with the xp and the 2k, maybe some conflict. Thx.
