I am logged on to both PC's with full admin rights and tried everything I can think of, but without success. Its to allow a third party program on the second PC the ability to read and write to a specific game directory in the main PC's program files folder. I did ask this question a while back and was told to install the game on the second PC, but that defeats the purpose of having the support apps running on the second PC over the network to share the load.
As I said, this worked fine in XP but I believe from Vista onwards Microsoft have "locked" the Program files folder from shares. Bit of a bummer when the game is actually a MS game. As a last resort I could reinstall the game in ints own directory outside the Program Files folder, but its a mega job and if there is another option even via hacking the registry I'd rather give it a try.
