Quickbooks Pro 2006 Read Only Issue

Hello All,

    I have a client that is experiencing a strange issue with Quickbooks Pro 2006.  They have QB installed on 3 systems that access the company file from a network share on a server.  They can all access the file just fine.  The issue is that one computer behaves weird.  When the user opens up the company file from this computer they can only open the file in read only and can't make any changes.  Doesn't matter which user account they logon as.  If that same user goes to another system to open up the same file it opens up properly and they can make changes.  Any thoughts on what's causing this specific computer to open up the company file in read only mode?

Something regarding the permissions of this file need to be set correctly.  I only see wht QBPrint file though on the server share.  Since I wasn't the person who set this whole thing up I'm not 100% sure how it was installed.

Copy the .QBW file to the local drive on the PC with the problem and see if you can open the file.

Just the QBW itself?  I'm finding more info about how this was setup from the old IT Guy here.  Seems this database was stored on a workstation and other systems were connected to it via a share.  Well he decided to move to the network and just dragged all the files from the desktop to the network server.  So not only is the database files on this share but a lot of other files.
