Recently I had expert advice on here on how to set up a network between mine and Danny's pc and it works great.

However, at the moment he has access to most files such as "my docs" "my music" etc, but for some reason I cannot get him access to "my desktop" as there are icons on there he needs to click on to get into his American Farmer game that is left on my pc.

It won't let me transfer the games files to his as it then decides it is a new installation and requires the unlock key, which I got when I purchased it some 5 years ago, but in the meantime for reasons only known to the manufacturers they tell me it is no longer available in the UK and the code is no longer valid.

It works perfectly on my pc, but the whole reason of getting Danny a games pc of his own was so I could get all his games off mine and go back to full time access to my machine,lol.

If there is no solution to the desktop access thingy I'll just have to let him carry on playing it on mine, but it would be very nice to finally have a "games free" machine.

H - E - L - P    Please!
