Disturbed.....I set my permissions for owner and user to read and write, same problem....however, I think the program itself might be stopping me because it sees the files as on a network, and I only paid for the standalone version. However, maybe not....Ill try to open a .doc file for something else and see what happens and report back...because I can't remember, but I think I had the same problem trying to open a .txt file with notepad a while back.
in the meantime I've been reading and writing to a usb drive to get the data files out of that .vbi file.
[SOLVED] Duh on me....don't throw anything at my avatar guys. All I had to do was map the shared linux folder containing all the data folders I needed in my XP Virtual Machine, at which time they showed up in explorer as drive Z. The I merely turned on sharing for that drive in the XP Virtual Machine, Tech support for my tax software helped, as the guy happened to a linux/VM user My tax program needed full control to use the ifles. Now everything is reading and writing back and forth through the 'virtual wall'.
