I am trying to get my HP laptop to go to my Dell desktop and open a program that has files that I need to work on. The error I get is that the HP only has "permission to read" and it must have "permission to read and write" so access is denied. I contacted the maker of the program Aurora that I'm trying to use and they couldn't correct the problem. HP couldn't correct the problem nor could the tech company "The Smart Guys" (recommended by HP) correct the problem. Both computers see each other, both have shared hard drives and the laptop is mapped to the Desktop. Any suggestions?

I think what is going on that the share permissions are set wrong on the folder you are sharing. You will need to set them so that you have write access.

You may also need to set the security settings to the appropriate.

Did you use the XP networking wizard (comes with the SP2 Critical Update) to set up the network between the two computers and allow sharing of the files?

XP networking wizard? Why did that work? I thought that when they were mapped and could see each other it WAS networked. It now works, thanks for fix.

It worked because it set the permissions for the folders you wanted to share.

You could have done it manually as well but it would have been much more complex.

You are welcome.
