SYMPTOMS

When you try to run an executable file from a LAN Manager for Unix (LMX) version 1.44 server, you may receive an "Access denied" error message, even though you have the correct permissions to access the file.

CAUSE

Some LMX configurations allow files to be opened for Execute access without allowing Read access. If a Windows 95 client opens such a file to run it, the server denies subsequent read requests. You must be able to read the file in order to run it.

This issue is resolved by the following updated file(s) for Windows 95, and later versions of these file(s):
   VREDIR.VXD  version 4.00.953  dated 9/13/95  140,367 bytes
