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:



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.
