file is not modifiable

file is not modifiable


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows XP

Description of the issue

The first error message I'm getting is saying "this action cannot be performed because this file is not modifiable."  When I log into windows as administrator and try to perform the same function it asks me for the password with an account name that I don't see in the account and privileges window.  So I enter an account and password that has full access and it doesn't recognize the account.  I've looked at other posts and I even unchecked "Use simple file sharing sharing (Recommended)" in windows xp folder options and nothing changed.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I'm trying to upload an image

Expected result

A window would pop up to browse for the image that you would want uploaded

Actual result

error message comes up twice

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

"Action cannot be performed because this file is not modifiable" and "The account name and password you entered does not match those for any FileMaker account" when I log in as windows administrator and a full access privilege account in FileMaker Pro

Configuration information

We previously made changes to the server location which made all the fields not modifiable so then we changed privilege sets and everything worked fine except a button that uploaded images.
