    Hi,
    I had to move my application along with data in a new laptop with windows
    xp. Here I was looking for the security tab to give permission to the folder
    where the database is. However, this security tab is missing. How does one
    activate the security tab in winsows xp? I appreciate any help. Regards.

  2. In Windows Explorer, do:

    Tools--Folder Options
    Switch to the View tab
    Uncheck the last option, "Use simple file sharing"

    This is under the assumption that your drive is NTFS, which I guess is a
    safe assumption if you're having security problems.
