Viewing permissions in windows 98

By Rosiebo ·
I am a system administrator, whenever I right click a file/folder and go to properties and the security tab, when I click the permissions, audit or ownership button, nothing happens, as I said I am an administrator, so I have the rights/permissions to do it. By the way this is on my machine, which I have just re-built hoping it would cure the problem, but it hasn't. My machine is a Compaq deskpro EXD/P733 with Windows 98 Second Edition 4.10.2222A. I can do it on the servers no problem. I have also been able to do it on my colleagues machine which is 95.

Any ideas?

you did not say what kind of server software you are running but it is my guess that you nedd to setup permissions on your server for your computer. can your computer acess the server using adminisrtator, check this . second check to see how the permissions are set on the server for your computer.in other words you need to go into the server and set the permission rights for your computer on the server. if all else fails you can try reloading windows 98 and pay particular attention to the pass word options.also check under fies and folders and see if show hidden files and folders is checked and while you are the check the other properties under files and folders and see what option are enabled hope this helps good luck

from what i can win95/98 dosn't have a "security tab". how are you getting win95/98 to do this? are you installing it on to an ntfs or something?? i didn't think that was posible. on all of our computers there are only permissions on the NT computers.

You must promise not to laugh or swear at Microsoft.. I presume you have installed the Server Tools provided by MS for administering NT from 95/98 which gives you the tabs you mention. The installer (or copier/extractor) fails to append to the pathvariable. If you add a set path=%path%;c:\srvtools to your autoexec.bat the tabs will work correctly. (This assumes that c:\srvtools is where you installed the tools to)
