Modifying Read Only Permissions on Folders

I have a Windows 2008 server that a folder on an install of a CRM client server application has the Read Only box checked and it's dimmed. When I go in with Domain Administrator Rights, uncheck the box and apply, it looks like it is unchecked. When I close the dialog box and then reopen it, it is still checked as read only (only for this folder). My problem is that I need to allow client machines to have write access to some to the files in the directory. The installed clients are not working right apparently because there isn't write access.

Any suggestions?

Perhaps the permissions are inherited from the folder above.  Either way those you should set your share permissions to full control for the everyone group.  Then under the security TAB add the users thta you would like to have access and set their security settings according!  Read, write, modify...

This behavior is normal and has no effect on whether users can modify the contents of the folders.  See this article for more information.

Check both share and NTFS permissions on the folders, as they are a likely cause of the problem.
