Hi there,

The read-only check box shouldn't be there. However, XP has an issue where it shows a dimmed checkbox even though the underlying files and folders aren't read-only.

My guess is that it's not related to the read-only flag (although you could try turning it off), but related to security. You should have the security tab in order to set the permissions. Take a look at Step 3 on page 654 to see how to enable the security tab. The pages that follow explain how to configure the App_Data folder.

If you can't control this folder yourself, have your admin look at chapter 18 so he can configure the permissions correctly.

Hope this helps,
