  • Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11

This article was previously published under Q107473


You may receive one of the following error messages when you try to copy files when 32-bit file access enabled:

  • Access Denied


  • Sharing Violation


These errors may occur when you are using 32-bit file access and trying to copy files in Microsoft Windows for Workgroups, especially if there is a low-memory situation. These errors occur because 32-bit file access is not handling the error messages correctly.


To work around this problem:

  • Disable 32-bit file access.


  • Increase the amount of memory available to Windows.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Windows for Workgroups version 3.11. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

Additional query words: 3.11 error message insufficient memory access is denied
