Works 2.00: Network Error Message “Sharing Violation”

PSS ID Number: Q58525 Article last modified on 06-12-1996




If more than one person attempts to run Works on a network, a “Sharing violation” error will occur if the files in the program directory on the server have not been flagged read only.

To change the file attributes of the Works program files to read only, so that they can be shared by multiple users, use the DOS ATTRIB command. Type “ATTRIB +r .” (without the quotation marks) while in the Works program directory on the server.

For more information, see Page 3 of your Works 2.00 “Network Administrator’s Guide.”
