You need permission to perform this action...again

    Sorry for posting this here but I can't find a windows 7 group.

    I am having problems coying a signed exe from a shared folder on Windows 7
    (Build 7100) to another windows 7 (Build 7100) computer.

    Each computer has a different admin account name with different password but
    both computers have a user account with the same name and password.

    I have used NT4, Windows 2000, 2003 and XP in my job over the years so I
    decided to use the advanced sharing. I share a folder on 1 computer and gave
    the user account full control under the share permissions. The
    administrators group owns the files in the shared folder. The user also has
    full control under the security tab.

    I can not double click and run the exes on the shared account. Nothing
    happens! The event logs are empty for this action. I have no feedback to
    tell me why it didn't run. Can someone point me in the direction of some log
    files for this please? An app ignoring the user with no feed back is very
    bad. Without feedback, how can I solve this issue?

    If I try to copy the file, I get the dreaded "You need permission to perform
    this action" even though the user account has full control at the
    destination. Why can't I copy a file using a user account please?

    If I try to copy the file using an admin account I create on both computers,
    it works. I don't want to do this though. If 1 computer gets a virus, the
    other can get infected as well.

    Cheers for any info you can supply,
