Need help with a network share issue.

I have 2 Win7 PCs running on a home network. I have various folders set up for shared access across the network and they work fine. However, I run a game on the main PC with add-ons that run on the 2nd PC. They run OK and connect with each other, but to get full functionality the add-on on the 2nd PC needs to be able to access the game folder on the main PC another.

The game folder is in the Program Files (x86) folder and I have set it up as a share. The PC and the shared folder appears in the network section on the 2nd PC. However, when I try to access it, it tells me that Windows cannot access the location because I do not have the permissions etc. I have checked and re-checked the share settings on the main PC and they seem to be OK.

All the oher folders I have shared are fine, eg My Doc, Music etc.

At a loss with this.

Install the game on both PC's and that should rectify the issue.
