Hello, I have an interesting problem.


I'm trying to get software on a Windows Vista computer read from a Windows XP Pro Corporate computer. To do this, I would assume simply file sharing is all I need. The computers see each other just fine.

The problem is, the Vista computer has User Access Control turned on. Therefore, when I try to access the computer from the XP computer, it asks me for a username and password. There is NO username and password set up on the Vista machine, so I obviously have no credentials to login with. Assuming UAC is the culprit, I turned it off. However, upon doing so, when I attempt to run a certain program, it says my data is corrupt, and it wont work. I turn UAC back on, and the program launches just fine.


When I simply right-click the folder containing the items I want to share, the "Click here to share" box is greyed out, and I can't share anything. As well, whenever I try to uncheck the "read only" area for the entire folder, and hit apply and ok, it comes right back up as read-only.


Any work-arounds for this?

Thanks guys,
JB
