If the XP computer is XP Pro and simple file sharing is disabled as shown in
Explorer/tools/folder options/view - simple file sharing then you need to
have a user account with a password on the XP computer that can be used to
authenticate to from the Windows 2003 operating system and ideally you would
logon to that account for Windows 2003. Check the security log on the XP
computer to see if any logon failures are shown at the time that access is
denied that may give you a clue as to what is going on. Can you access that
shared folder from another computer on the network??

I have shared a folder on a machine running MS Windows XP SP2, initially
granting 'read' to everyone and then granting full rights.
When trying to copy from the share from a Virtual PC machine which runs
Windows 2003 SP 2, on the same network, an error is being displayed saying
that access is denied.
The file cannot be executed directly from the share either.
Any ideas, pls?
