Hi,
The 7 machine is not able to write to the XP because permissions are not correct.

Ok. Here is a way to take ownership of the file in windows 7, then you can add your permissions regarding your user account to the folder

I think that it is a problem because windows 7 is viewing it as a hard drive inserted from another machine still, and you do not have permissions to use it.

Ok I've finally been able to get back to the remote machine but am still having trouble with the permissions. I have installed the "Take Ownership" reg edit but this has not helped. Perhaps I haven't explained myself properly.

On the XP Mode machine the folder where the user needs to drop a CSV file into is located at;
C:\Program Files\CHEP\CMSENET\DATA\ExportFiles or \ImportFiles

What I need is to have both these folders appear on the desktop of the host machine as shortcuts so the user can drop the CSV file into it.
At present I have the folders on the desktop and I can open them up but I am not able to paste the CSV file into either of folder as it comes up with "You need Permission to perform this action".

What am I doing wrong?

OK, tested in both workgroup and domain environment. I had no problems whatsoever.

I created a folder called Test_Folder in XP Mode C:\Program Files\Test_Folder. I shared the folder:

Name:  Share_XPMode_host_1.png
Views: 6
Size:  25.2 KB

I then created subfolder C:\Program Files\Test_Folder\Test_Subfolder. Seven host can see the shared folder and its folder structure:

Name:  Share_XPMode_host_2.png
Views: 5
Size:  41.7 KB

-share_xpmode_host_3.png

Opened Word on host, wrote a short test document, saved it on a network shared folder \\XPMODE-1\Test_Folder\Test_Subfolder. Save As dialog in Word has no problems to see this shared folder:

-share_xpmode_host_4.png

The document is saved on XP Mode, accessible and editable directly from host:

-share_xpmode_host_5.png

EDIT: Forgot the most important thing. I created a shortcut to this shared folder \\XPMode-1\Program Files\Test_Folder on host's desktop. It is directly accesible:

Name:  Share_XPMode_host_6.png
Views: 4
Size:  179.1 KB

-share_xpmode_host_7.png

Notice that I did this and got it working only by sharing the needed folder in XPMode C:\Program Files. There was no need to take ownership of anything.

Hi Kari,

I followed your steps but got a different screens when trying to share.....but, the process you described made sense. As you can see in the image there is a permissions button, one in that dialogue box I clicked Full Control for the user Everyone and it is now working perfectly!!

Thank you so much for your assistance!

Sean
