RE: [wsjtgroup] administrative privileges needed for wsjt?
- Art, I forgot one thing. You might have to change your file sharing
settings in XP in order for what I described to work. This may be
especially true if you are running XP home edition. If The security tab is
not displayed as I described, you need to do the following:
In Windows Explorer, click tools, then folder options, then click on the
view tab. A window showing various options is displayed. The last option
is "Use Simple File Sharing". If it is checked, uncheck it and click OK.
Then the security tab will be displayed in the properties dialog of each
