Add Another Computer To Folder Access


I have windows 7 ultimate acting as the "server" on a network. This unit has multiple users on it. In the office i also have additional computers, (different computer names), with the exact same users/passwords setup on them. They match the "server" computer. I am now trying to setup security on the "server". What i would like to do is share a folder with specific privileges that allow/restrict access to specific users. The problem is i can not change the "from this location" when adding a user/group. I need to allow the user serveruser1 and officersuser1, etc. To have specific access to various files/folders. How can i do this?

Folder Access Denied - Cant Delete Folder

Folder access denied

You'll need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder

Continue skip cancel

- I click continue and i get:

Folder access denied

You require permission from laptop/chris to make changes to this folder

Try again cancel

- I am laptopchris! (My username is chris on the login screen so i presume i am laptop/chris). Do i have to have permission to do something on my own computer? It's my computer! Im a newbie when it comes to windows 7. Windows 95, 98, 98se, me, 2000, xp im more advanced in, with vista im slightly there.

I have tried numerous attempts at the silly take ownership thing but it seems to have failed. The message i get up when applying the new settings is:

Error applying security information to :

C:users.

Access is denied

This is rather frustrating - am i doing something wrong? Would someone please provide simple, easy to follow, accurate steps to take ownership and provide me with a solution or better, a fix, if this doesn't work?

Getting Folder Access Denied

I am trying to copy files from my old xp pro laptop to my new windows 7 desktop. I've shared the drive from my old laptop on my home network. I can see the folders and files i want to copy. I started to copy a folder and it copied 2 files then gave me a folder access denied message. The files that copied witn no problem were an excel 2003 spread sheet and a word 2003 document. The file that won't copy is a .zip file. I am the only user on both the xp pro and the windows 7 server. I just want to copy all the documents i have from the old laptop to my new computer. Sounds pretty straight forward. Any ideas on how to do this simple task?

Cannot Access Documents And Setting Folder

I recently installed windows 7 rc as a dual boot with xp. Unfortunately, in windows 7, not only can i not access my documents and setting folder (win7 partition), but nothing through the 'user' folder, either. I created a new account, and had the same trouble. I've tried changing permissions through the tabs and dialogs, including in safe mode, and just as it seems it's getting ready to write the new permissions, it pops up yet another 'access denied' dialog. I've gone through windows update and all is up to date.

Should i be concerned, or is this a 'windows 7 rc' quirk?  How will it affect applications i might want to install to "try out"?

Folder Access Denied For Administrator

I need to reset a number of data files in my application data folders. However i cannot open these folders as "access is denied" e.g.

C:usersappdatalocalapplication data is not accessible. Access is denied.

Same "access is denied" with documents and settings, history, temp internet files, cookies etc. {Edit: and local settings - this is getting critical - please help!}

I have tried:

Properties > security tab - administrator has greyed allow ticks against all - still cannot access folders

Resetting security defaults - as per other solution for vista - still cannot access folders

Cannot Access Temp Folder For .pdf Creator

This is a new pc installed with windows 7 basic i installed a physical printer via usb no problem , then tried to install a .pdf creator to send statements from a rental program. On installation and opening the .pdf creator program i receive an error that it does not have permission to open the temp folder.

I then also tried to install a second printer via usb but constantly receive the message usb device not recognized! And the printer cannot be found or installed. The .pdf creator should create a pdf printer under printers but it hasn't. I was convinced after scouring countless forums  that the two problems were linked and had to do with -user account control settings - alas after disabling it no luck neither will work.

I have tried the following rebooted countless times unplugging the pc turned uac off and on with reboots in between and attempting .pdf creator install and the second usb printer install with this setting on and off with no luck.

Checked the register entry for uac to ensure it was totally disabled checked that the second usb samsung printer is 100% compatible with windows 7 downloaded the latest .pdf creator installation files rolled back all the windows 7 updates with a system restore uninstall all the usb drivers which then reinstalled on reboot. Tried to manually add the samsung printer using add printer
I am now at a loss and am convinced the two problems are linked.

Can't Access Root Folder Nas Drive

Since i upgraded from vista to windows 7 i can't access my root folder on my network drive (nas) anymore. In vista when i choose network it displayed me all networks including my nas drive, there i could select it and it would forward me to the nas root. In windows 7 it doesn't show me to nas and if i tell to go to root likezelst it will give me a permission / access error. The only way for me is to map a sub-folder on the nas directly likezelstfolder1 etc. I wanna know if i can make windows 7 show me my nas drive again and being able to access it's root folder.

Error - Access Is Denied When Trying To Access A Shared Drive

I am getting an error "access is denied" when trying to access a shared drive on windows 7 machine that is not the specified "public" folder. How do i fix this?. I have done a fair bit of googling to no avail!

I have also made all he necessary network and sharing settings to allow connections. Other computers can access the "public" folder. But not the other shares that i set up. Although the other computer/s can 'see' them when viewing workgroup computers. Nb. All machines are on the same workgroup name.

Access Denied - Cannot Access The Outlook.ost File

We have installed windows 7 on a new machine. The user is a domain administrator and has full rights. When we try to open outlook, it says that it cannot access the outlook. Ost file and then freezes. We have moved the uac slider all the way to don't notify, granted explicit ownership to the c: users folder, given machine specific administrator rights to the user and the problem still persists.

When we log in as the hidden administrator though, everything works just fine for the same users exchange login. The user cannot even delete files on the network that belong to the user! Everything works fine when he logs in from another machine running xp. What are we missing here?

Add Printer Does Not Work

I recently tried to install a new printer on a laptop running windows 7 ultimate. After attempting this, i can no longer add a new printer nor print to my existing printers. If i try to add a new printer, a message appears that states: unable to install printer. The print processor does not exist. If i try to print to an existing printer, the computer claims that the printer does not exist. Is there any good way to "reset" the windows printing subsystem? 

I'm really at my wits end with this issue and do not want to be forced to reinstall windows to correct this issue. I have checked the windows spooler service and it is running and does not appear to be generating any errors in the event viewer. I have also come across some previous posts that stated you may be able to install a new printer with a generic driver first and then change it, but this does not work either. Any recommendations regarding how to correct this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Add-ons Do Not Work

I tried to go on youtube, but it said i needed to  "get the latest flash player. " To see a video. I clicked the link and downloaded it, and the flash player still didnt work. I started looking at the faq and it said to go to tools and then manage add-ons, and then to enable what i needed to but that didnt work either because the active x was not disabled. Then i went to the internet options and changed all activex settings to enable, and then restarted my computer, but i still cant watch videos or play games that require active x

I have vista, and internet explorer 8

Cannot Get Add-ons Re-enabled

I turned on my explorer yesterday and i had a message that it was running in no-add on mode. I didn't turn it to this it just happened, i didn't think nothing of this cause it didn't effect what i was doing that day. But today i noticed that one of my toolbars is missing and none of my flash works. When i went to download the newest adobe up update nothing happened. I went through the manage add ons and every thing is enabled in the first place, and i went through internet options and enabled things there to. But nothing works, and all my explorer icons still referrer to it as in no add-on mode.

Libraries Not Working, Cannot Add New Ones

I just installed win 7 professional (and activated it) and the libraries section in windows explorer doesn't work. Instead of showing the default ones (documents, music, pictures, videos) it displays some links, documents. Library-ms, music. Library-ms, pictures. Library-ms, videos. Library-ms. If i click on them nothing happens. Also these libraries show up the same way in the star menu (as weird links). It doesn't let me add new ones either. If i right-click libraries and choose new, there's no option, it is empty. I include the links to pictures so you can see the problem.

This exact same problem happened when the first windows 7 evaluation copy was released, but it was fixed when the rc came out. But now that i bought the professional edition it happened again. :S

Add And Remove Programs Is Not Working

Suddenly, my 500 gb computer hard drive that had few used space is showing that i have 22 mb left. I can't figure out why. I have noticed that the programs that i have uninstalled in add or remove are still on my hard drive-folders as well as the megabytes they use. I am baffled! Can anyone make a suggestion. I think something is wrong with the windows.

My starry night enthusiast program is taking up 768 mb and windows did not install any of it. The fold er is still there. I had tried ibm lotus, and uninstalled it. It is still there. When i tried to contact microsoft for support, it has expired. That was a shock! It hasn't been out that long! Has anyone else had this problem? Can i just delete the folders since i did the uninstalls?

Add A Printer Error 0x0000052e

Windows 7 doesn't seem to like our environment at all. The latest problem is when i try to add a networked printer; after i enter the unc servershare printer name and choose next, i get this:

    Windows cannot connect to printer.
    Operation failed with error 0x0000052e.

The printer is hosted on a windows server 2003 r2 server, which has not shown this error to any windows xp or vista clients, only to windows 7 rc clients and for all printers. The printer driver is already installed locally, if that matters. I did not attempt to elevate (run as administrator) when i opened control panel->devices and printers, because i didn't see an option to do so. Anybody have an idea what's wrong with this?

Add A Shared Printer On A Network

I recently installed windows 7 64 bit and i'm trying to add an hp deskjet 970cse printer that's been shared on my corporate network. I went to hp's web site and looked for the appropriate windows 7 64-bit driver to download and found there isn't one, that it is supposed to be built into windows 7 and that windows 7 should find the driver automatically when i add the printer, which it doesn't seem to be able to do, at least for this shared printer. I moved the printer and physically connected it to my windows 7 system and w7 was able to install the correct driver.

I then put the printer back on the system on which it belongs and was still unable to connect to it through the network. I went through hp support to try to get them to send me the driver so i could point to it manually to get the printer installed that way but after much back and forth, they refused to do so.

The system on my corporate network on which the printer is physically connected and installed is a system running windows xp 32-bit with service pack 3. On my own w7 64-bit system, i go to control panel > hardware and sound > devices and printers and select "add a printer". I then select "add a network, wireless or bluetooth pinter". It searches and says "no printers were found" so i click "the printer that i want isn't listed". In the next dialog, i choose "select a shared printer by name", select the browse button, navigate to the system with the printer installed and select the printer. The correct printer share name is then displayed in the edit control and i click "next".

I get a message box with the caption "windows printer installation". The message says "connecting to hpdeskjet on nadpayne" on the first line and "looking for a driver" briefly on the second line before the message changes to "checking windows update. This might take a while. ". It continues for a little bit then displays a second message box with the caption "connect to printer" and the message "no driver found. Windows can't find a driver for hp deskjet 970c series on the network. To locate one manually, click ok. Otherwise, click cancel and consult your network administrator or the printer manufacturer's website. "

Is it possible to add this printer to my w7 64-bit system when it's shared out bya winxp 32-bit system? If yes, how?
