Hi,
"No" the network kernel is not being pulled from the network.
"Yes" sounds like permissions lock down issues.

You know what guys....
When you have a Windows 2000 server based network with network GPO's, or possible active directory,
and especially with an XP operating system... if I got me strange things happening, my first step is to
unplug from the network, login as local machine admin. and try things out. This is a 3 minute effort
and proves two things for sure:
1. Nothing on the network is hitting you from the network administrators policies.
2. You have total access to the local machince, all folders and all registry keys.

The comment about issues like this being permission problems... well do you not think that my approach
proves this rather than someone trying various things and getting no where. Do what you feel is best, but
since I admin. a large Windows 2000 network with active directory, and have either Win2000/XP
workstations attached, this is my very first steps with flaky permission difficulties in any application
including VFP.

Let me give you an example of a friend of mines problem.... who purchased a memory stick for work.
It would not work on his workstation. He tried 2 other workstations and it would not work, or even
enable. Took it back to the store as defective, got another one, same problem. Asked his network
administrator for assistance.. was advised nothing on the network would cause this... another defective
one. Back to the store... with the 3rd one... same isssue. Turned out a GPO from corporate office
has been set to disable external devices on computer, not at his work site at their domain level, but at
the top level in the active directory forest. He unplugged from the network, logged in as local admin.
and vola his stick worked.

So what I am trying to suggest is a sytematic way to prove this, either VFP can set defa to, or it cannot.
Quite obvious after all these threads that this fellow has looked at the folder and permissions I would
expect, so what is causing this then?? At least with my 3 minutes endeavour you know.
