SBS 2008 Migration from SBS 2003 "Standard User" access issue.

I have 2 network shares to applications that run from the server. (which is at the last step of a migration.)

The standard users can run the setup files and access the share.

I can copy, paste and delete files from both application shared locations.

However when the installed link is clicked to run, a lock error is received.

If i change that user to an admin user it runs fine.

The applications are PhoneSlips and ProSystem FX.

What can I change to allow standard users run access to these programs?

Thanks, Aaron

Try giving the users "traverse folder / execute file" NTFS permission and make sure its shared with everyone: full control

In folder properties i assigned a group containing all users to full control and now it works. Don't know if this was the best way to do this but it worked.

I've read somewhere that folder permissions should be assigned using the windows sbs console. Hope i did not screw something else up doing it this way.

I removed the inherited permissions then it worked.

Had to remove the inherited permissions before it worked, but you pointed me in the right direction.
