How to share a database file between Win 7 computers

By troyteck ·
I am attempting to run an accounting program from a remote client computer. The program is installed on a Win 7 computer. The client is also Win 7. Both computers are attached to a LAN.

The program folders are shared and not marked read only.

I can open the program successfully from the client computer. However, when trying to run the program, an error message appears reporting that a database file cannot be accessed because it is read only.

The program can be run successfully by the same user on the host computer. The user has administrator rights on both computers.

Any thoughts on why the client computer thinks the database files are read only?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

People sometimes miss setting the sharing permissions in addition to the regular permissions.....I suspect that will have solved your problem
