Cannot access doc win2k pc fr win98se

By 3Dad ·
In attempting to access any office files on a win2k wrokstation from any win98se workstation returns "Cannot access read-only file *.doc, *.xls.", then a second "Cannot access *.doc, *.xls." On win2k macine, folder is shared, and all directory's andcontents are viewed from all other workstations, but files cannot be opened for viewing. Read Permissions have be granted to "everyone", and Full access granted to specific users. TCP/IP and Netbeui are the protocols, and access to everything else from all workstations are wroking properly. FYI, this is the first wik2k workstation on a 1 server LAN, with the server running win2k, and all other workstations are win98.

Thank You in advance for any reply's.

In response to perezgg@yahoo.com, just to confirm, I understand from th ms kb article Q23986 - that the DSclient needs be installed on the win98se client. Then I must manually create an LS key in the registry, as well as manually add the value?

FYI, I'm going to address this issue this weekend, other items have taken priority since the posting of my question. I'll close & reward the points then. Due to issues described in the MS KB article Q283261, I've opted to image the disk on the client prior to installing DSCLient.

May be today. If time allows. No one's paying attention anyway. If it works, you'll get you're points.
