Shared file crisis

By shelby.wiles ·
I have software that my users are running that is only licensed for one user. Therefore, we have our file permission set to one user and the two users that access this software exit the application each time the other one needs access. My problem isthat after I applied my Y2K patches to our desktop computers my shared files will not let go of a user when she exits the application. She has to log completely off of the network in order for the share to be released and the other user to be able to access the files. This is an Access based application and the files shared is a database. I have checked to make sure that it is not set to exclusive and have checked the ODBC permissions. PLEASE HELP. I am at my wits end.

Shelby,

I hate to say this, but our Access developer had some extremely serious issues to deal with regarding Access. There are still a lot of unresolved issues with the applications that the program created.

The Access application itself is supposed to be okay, but the programs created with it have problems.

I hate to tell you this, but I recommend thoroughly combing the Knowledge Bases that Microsoft has posted in the Tech Net area of their web site. This will be a grueling and tedious task, but I feel that it will certainly be worth its while in the end. I hope this helped.

By the way, if it is very critical, I would advise a telephone call to Microsoft's priority support number. (very costly, but effective) I think it runs between 200-500 dollars per call, but it has been a while since I last priced it.

Good luck!
