Hi Guys,

Can anyone help me re above.

Simple file sharing is already enabled but still it is greyed out. Any solutions? See attached file for your reference.

One of our internal application should create a automatic temporary shared folder.

Any suggestions/solutions will be highly appreciated.

What operating system and are you logged in as administrator?

From time to time, we have been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?

Hi djaburg,

Good Day!

We are using Windows Server 2008 and we access the application thru RDP using a remote user. It already have the local administrator rights and member of remote desktop users on the said server.

Hope you can help me on this.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Wand3r3r,

The application is creating a temporary folder as shared folder in C\Program Files\(our inhouse program)\

I'm having a problem using the RDP user which already have an local administrator rights and also as a rdp user.
