Cannot run .exe programs on 2003 member server

I have a MS 2003 Standard member server that i cannt seem to run .exe programs from any other servers. I have mapped drives to the other servers and need to install some important programs but just says i do not have permission to do so.

I am logged in as Admin on the domain
I turned off the firewall
I can create and delete folders from other servers just fine

Please help.

Thanks

You can try right clicking the executable and unblocking to see if that helps. If this is the problem it is a security feature added with SP2 I believe.

I tried right clicking on it and "Run As" but didnt work. I didnt see a "Unblock" .

Could it be the Enhanced Security for IE7?

If you issue the install command from the cli what errors do you see if any?

Sorry i should of typed out the error.

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file"  You may not have appropriate permissions to access the file."

I fixed it by uninstalling the IE7 Enhanced Security. No idea why that has anything to do with it but it worked. Anybody know why??? I seen somebody else had the same problem here

That would be MS answer to fixing all of your security problems. If they don't allow you to execute remote code, you will never get a virus right! By default, I remove this as part of my installation process. This will also create problems with programs that need to run via mapped drive even if the are installed successfully, like Goldmine.

Would of been nice for them to tell us :) yeah right :)

Thanks a bunch though for everybodys reponses. I would have never figured that IE7 Enhanced Security would have anything to do with the problem.
