    Have a 2 machine network. Machine 1 is running Windows 98 SE,
    and has the Quickbooks pro installed on it. It also has the
    quickbooks pro data file on it.

    The folder where the data file exists is shared. C$ is used as
    the share.

    Machine 2 on the network is Windows 2000 Professional. It maps
    the share from Machine 1. Quickbooks Pro is installed on this machine.

    Recently, when trying to access the company file from machine 2, quickbooks pro says "Company file in use by another user". Even if no-one has quickboos pro running on Machine 1. No matter what I do, it continues to do this.

    I know that the company file had been corrupted and rebuilt.

    Any ideas on how to fix this ? The only thing I can think of is to remove Quickbooks pro from both machines and re-install.

    thanks in advance.

    I would try to rebuild the file again or do a backup, then restore or rebuild that file before doing a re-install. You might also try putting it in MultiUser mode before saving, I'm sure you've done this, but just in case.. Also, are you up to date on QB services patches?
