Share database in Extra / Database Maintenance is greyed out,

I use Act 10 by Sage since april 30th with a single user licence. I bought an extra licence for my partner and installed it on her computer with WIndows XP SP2. Now i try to have her login on the database on my system but i get an errormessage from act that the database cannot be found in the map on my PC (where it is saved and visible from her PC and selected the *.pad-file). The map where the databases are is shared under Windows Vista professional. I'm administrator on both PC's and in Act.

I read that i must put the database to be shared. But I cannot put the database to be Shared in the Extra // Database Maintenance menu; this option is greyed out, it cannot be selected. My partner can login with her name on my PC.

On both PC's I use Act 10.0.1.199 Dutch.

 

Maybe the following is connected to this problem: i use several databases. In the first database Act says there are licences for two users, in the other database Act only knows of 1 licence.

 

How do i sove the sharing problem?

Problem solved, I have to start the program as an Administrator.
