Cannot share Program Files on Windows Vista - ACCESS DENIED!
Posted on 2008-02-11
I have set up a network with 2 vista computers over a wireless network. I can access the public folders and any other files that i share in the User's Folder. I however need to share a specialized framing software program which is located in Program Files.
I have shared this folder called "Framing Software" under the directory "Program Files" and set the user group Everyone to have full access and control. Then when I try to access the folder from the other Vista computer I can not access it.
I can not access any folder in the C Drive either, I can however access any other folder shared under the Users Folder eg Documents, Desktop etc. But the program cannot run from this location.
This problem happens on both computers. There must be some setting I am overlooking, It can not be impossible - Please help!
