Access 2003 database opens as read-only in Access 2010

I have an Access 2003 application.  There are users using Access 2003 and some using Access 2010 that need to access the main application database.

When I open the Access 2003 application using Window7 and Access 2010 with my log in the programs works as expected.  When we open the Access 2003 application using Windows7 and Access 2010 using a user's log in...the application only opens in a read-only mode.

Is this most likely caused by user permissions on the server or something in Access 2010?  The Access 2003 application does not require user passwords.

The most common cause is the Trusted Location or the Trusted Document feature :

Another possible cause, as you mentioned that it does work for you, but not for other users with different credentials:

Does all users have the same NTFS permissions - read, write, create file, delete file - on the folder where the database file is stored?

Where is the database file stored?

Maybe you also have a problem due to Virtualization:
