Guard1 Plus uses a locked Microsoft Access database to store data and the Microsoft Jet Engine for accessing the data. Since these Microsoft tools cannot open files that are Read-only, Guard1 Plus, Rounds Tracker and Viewer cannot open them. This refers to Guard1 Plus databases (with file extension *.g1p) that meet one or more of these conditions:
- In a network environment, you do not have write privileges for the database file or the folder where it is located.
- The database file is stored on Read-only media such as CDs or DVDs.
- The database file is defined as Read-only in the operating system or by your network.
Verify that you have "Modify" permissions to the folder where the database file is stored.
If the file is located on a CD or DVD, copy the file to a folder on your hard drive. Verify that you have "Modify" permissions to the destination folder.
Verify that the database file is not set to Read-only:
1. Open My Computer and navigate to the Guard1 Plus database file.
2. Right-click the file and select Properties.
3. Clear the "Read-only" check box and click OK.
