Vista HP Permissions Issues
I am trying to network a group of laptops runniing Vista Home Prem.

The users must access a shared folder on one HP laptop.

This contains the "Back end" of an access database. Runtime MS Access and
the "Front End" are installed on all other laptops.

However, I cannot get more than a single user onto the system at once - when
one user logs into the "front end" no other user can, until that person logs
out - then another user gets access.

This seems to be an issue with permissions in Home Prem. But I have been
thus far unable to resolve it.

On the "host" PC, the folder is set to share, and I've set "Everyone" to
Full Control in the permissions, and I've also tried this with "Guests".

Can anyone offer some advice on how to resolve this?

Have a read of the above link re Vista File and Printer Sharing.

How to give Permissions are there, too.

If you are running Norton, Trend Micro, McAfee, etc’s Firewall, check its
settings to make sure it allows file and printer sharing..

1st thing to do is make sure that the Workgroup Name of ALL the computers is
the SAME.

In Vista Network and Sharing:

Network Discovery: ON (So it can see the other computers)

Network set to Private (Public is for hotspots, airports, etc)

File Sharing: ON

Public Folder Sharing: ON (Vista’s Public Folder is the same as XP’s Shared
Docs)

Password Protected: OFF (unless you want to set up identical usernames and
passwords on ALL computers in your Network) If you have it ON, you will be
asked for a username and password when you try to access a Vista computer
from an XP computer.

RE: Vista HP Permissions Issues
Thanks for that Mick.

However, I've found what I believe to be the problem. This is copied and
pasted from a forum - I cant access the original link from here to post, as
the forum is blocked by our corporate firewall. I'd saved the text to refer
to.

This describes our EXACT issue, and refers to a MS Hotfix that needs to be
obtained directly from MS Support:

Major bug in Vista File Sharing (Peer-to-Peer)
Reply Quote

A friend of mine called me yesterday and told me that there appears to be a
major bug in Vista File Sharing on Peer to Peer setups. It appears that when
you create a File share on a Vista Machine and it is accessed by 2 Vista
machines simultaneously, it will cause the file to appear corrupted or system
hangs. He then pointed me to this website Major Bug In Vista File Sharing
where there was an extensive discussion on the problem. Below is a
reproduction of the issues highlighted :

Scenario 1

1. Computer A is installed with Vista (Any Version) and creates a File
Share "Shared Data" with a word document or access database

2. User on Computer A opens the word document

3. Computer B is also installed with Vista (Any Version) and accesses
the same word document in \\ComputerA\Shared Data .

4. Computer B will hang (lock up) and will fail to respond completely
until the word document in Computer A is closed.

Note: The same scenario will occur if you open any other documents or
database in Computer A first

Scenario 2

5. Computer B accesses the word document in \\ComputerA\Shared Data

6. Computer A accesses the word document in Shared Data without any
problems

7. Computer C (also installed with Vista) accesses the word document
in \\ComputerA\Shared Data will hang (lock up) and fail to respond completely
until the word doucment in Computer A is closed.

Scenario 3

8. Computer D is installed with Windows XP and creates a "Shared
Data2" folder with a word document in it

9. Computer D accesses the word document in \\ComputerD\Shared Data2

10. Computer A accesses the word document in \\ComputerD\Shared Data2
without any problems

11. Computer B accesses the word document in \\ComputerD\Shared Data2
without any problems

The solution to the problem is now available through a Microsoft Hot Fix as
described in KB article 935366 . However please note that the fix is not
available as a public download. Users who are affected by this bug will need
to call Microsoft Customer Support for the fix. It is not distributeable and
is free if you request for hotfix KB 935366. It is anticipated that the hot
fix will be available in Vista SP1.

---------------------

Will post the results if they're successful
