remove read only attribute

Hi,

I have a probelm with VB. I designed a program in one of my friend computer. After sometime, I wanted to move to my computer. I copied the program using CD. when I copied to my computer, I tried to modified the program what I desgine. It said it is only read only. In the project, all the forms for example are locked. So how can I unlocked and edit?

Best Reards.

After copying from cd the file attribute gets set to read only.
What you can do is go to windows explorer, right click on the files, in the popup
>in attributes > uncheck the read-only checkbox and click on ok.

uncheck the readonly attribute in the properties of all the files

Remove the read-only attribute of all the files. The files written to cd will be read only by default. So after copying it into the system you need to change the file attribute. For that, right-click the file and click properties in the popup menu. In the properties window, uncheck the readonly attribute.

This comment is only to simplify the process since all files can be done at once.  Give credit to an answer above.

In Windows Explorer
Navigate to the directory with the files
Select one file
Type CTRL-A (Select all files)
Right click the selection
Select PROPERTIES
Uncheck READ ONLY

For future reference.  Remember CD-ROMs are for the most part read only, thereforethe files have the READ ONLY attribute set.  Any time you copy files from a CD ROM and you need to modify them, you will need to follow the process above.
