Vista=smelly & Vista!=awesome
 
"your folder cannot be shared"

This is what Vista tells me after I try to share a folder. I right click, choose share select a user and wait 3 minutes or so until it finally chokes, go to help follow instructions explicitly and get same error. Anger rising. No hits on Google for this error. *SIGH*.

Thank goodness for putty and pscp.exe.

Oh humble sshd how I love thee
allow me to bask in the warmth of your unerring
data transfers.

This reminds me of the end of the Mac vs PC commercial:

"You're coming to a sad realization. Cancel or Allow?"

Well, not quite but I wouldn't be surprised.

Perhaps you should install SAMBA.

(hehe, the day when you need SAMBA on Windows)

I once found the "cacls" command more helpful than clicking on stuff to change permissions on a folder but I don't see that it is useful for sharing.
