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?

When you set up folder sharing, did you tick, allow network users to change my files

Both computers have full acess to each other. Their hardrives are set for sharing eveything.

The program "Aurora" may only be installed on one computer, thus that computer becomes the server for any other computer wanting to use the program. In this case my desktop is the server and I want the laptop to access the program via the network to which the laptop is mapped in.

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.
