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.

Just wondering could I use this to change ownership of the entire C:?

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: 4
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: 3
Size:  41.7 KB

XP Mode, sharing files on guest machine-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:

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

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: 2
Size:  179.1 KB

XP Mode, sharing files on guest machine-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
