    I need to share the programme files of a programme in XP so that my other computers can use the same programme in real time, i used XP cause i thought it was more stable and better for networking than 98, but now i can connect the main programme my business uses.

    Ive looked through the links in your first announcement and found some helpfull stuff but it says "windows and programme files" cant be shared, is there any way around this?

    Kind Regards

    You would need to disable Simple File Sharing and use Windows 2000 style permissions for sharing, and give network users read permission to the Program Files and Windows folder.
