315854 Windows 98 and Windows Me Error Message Resource Center
When you use a Windows 95-based computer to copy a read-only file to acore SMB server (such as a LAN Manager for UNIX server), you may receivethe following error message:
Error 5 - Access Denied
This occurs when using Explorer or XCOPY to copy the read-only file to theserver. This does not occur when using File Manager.
This error message occurs because there is a mismatch between the way thatthe Windows 95 redirector accesses files and the way that core SMB serversexpect this access.
To work around this issue, use the Windows 3.x File Manager tool(Winfile.exe) to copy the file. This tool is in your Windows folder.
A supported fix for Windows 95 that corrects this problem is now availablefrom Microsoft, but has not been fully regression tested and should beapplied only to computers experiencing this specific problem. To resolvethis problem immediately, contact Microsoft Technical Support to obtainthe fix.
