Share the LandFX Folder on Your Network (Give Users Read-Write Permissions)

Issue

You need share the LandFX folder on your office server or network, giving read-write permissions to one or more users in your office.

 

 

For example, you may have received a permissions error like the one pictured below:

 

Proper use of our software requires read/write permission for the LandFX folder. The following steps will provide a user (or all users) on your network with full access to the LandFX folder on your server, allowing them to operate our software.

If you are a member of a domain, you'll need to have your network administrator modify the Active Directory to allow you to obtain read/write permission for the LandFX folder.
