Error "database cannot be accessed, check connections, firewall may need to be disabled"

This happened after I moved a database around (by mistake) and then tried to open it.  I disabled the windows firewall.  I never recieved this error prior to moving the database.

Help please!

Delete the PAD file and open the ADF.

New Error - no permission to access

Thanks, I deleted it, and now when I try and open the .ADF file, I get a different message - "I do not have permission to access etc...".  I am a one man show here - the only one who uses this PC.  HELP (again) and I really appreciate it!!!!!!!1

Re: New Error - no permission to access

What operating system are you using?  Where did you move the database to and how?

Re: New Error - no permission to access

I'm using Vista and I mistakenly moved the database when I was moving files in Windows Explore.  I always log on as administrator at the sign in box at start up; there is no other user set up on this PC.  Any ideas???

Disable UAC using the KB below and try to open the ADF file again.
