OK. That was it. Though I added the user into the Power User group. Kind 
of hokey that was needed. Good thing there are only a couple computers 
here on my network.

And I had to reboot twice. After the change, I still could not run the 
program, so on a hunch I reboot. Then XP could not access the user 
profile information and created a temp profile. A second reboot got 
everything working.

I knew this was not the case. I was able to access the file(s) just fine 
from the local user by browsing and mounting the share.

I got this set. Now we will see what is the next issue to pop up...
