Access Denied Error

When accessing a wordperfect datafile on a shared folder on a windows xp computer from both windows xp and home computers on the same domain in a simple 10 computer peer-to-peer LAN, we are starting to get "access denied" errors.  This error resolves only if someone on the computer with the shared folder cuts and pastes the problem file out of and then back into the shared folder.  This started about two months ago, for no apparent reason.  We have no virus as per McAfee.  I have run registry cleaners, with a clean bill of health.  We are using simplified file sharing.  What's the solution?

If the file is on a XP computer there is a limit of only 5 connection at a time. You may try to see who's accessing the file using Aministrative tools: right click My computer, choose Manage and scroll to Shared folders/Open files when you have the error.

This sounds like a simple problem.

In the parent folders, The very root shared folders right click them and select "security" then click add and add the "Domain Users" group. Make sure it has all the access you want them to have. eg, read, write, modifty, ownership. Then click ok. Now make all your users a member of the "Domain Users" group and everyone should be able to view each others files and move them around.

Does this help?

Well thanks for a negative comment on my account. I try to help and you respond with that. If you read over again you will notice I missed a comma within   "select "security" then click add and add the "Domain Users"". But my answer would actually solve your problem.

...Forget it then

The limit of 5 connection, as I wrote, can be the error reason.
