    Win 8 RP Access Privileges

    I have a Power Point Viewer Slide Show which opens without problem in Win 7 Pro. However, when I try to open it with Power Point Viewer in Win 8 RP, which I installed on a separate partition, PPV can't open it and says"ensure you have access privileges to read or write the document". I tried altering the file's permissions but whatever alterations I make I am told "You must have read permissions to view the properties of this object", and I get this message even after I have gone in to the Advanced Properties window and allowed myself full control.

    How do I sort this problem out?

    Advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks and regards, Roy

    Have you tried Take Ownership? This tends to give higher level of permission. I would try Right Click on the file in question and Take Ownership of the file.

    The account you are using in Windows 8 is different from the account that created the file. Right click the file, in Windows 7, and check the permissions. Change them to allow Everyone permissions to read, write, etc., on that file.

    Ted, thanks but I had already tried that.

    ruirib, thanks -I did that and can now open the file in Win 8.

    Best regards, Roy

    No problem, Ted .

    Even if TakeOwnership worked, it could probably create similar issues, when the file was again accessed from Windows 7.
