    Strange problem with Windows 7.  I’m doing the database development in MS Access, and my database has 13 tables, 7 of them linked to the external mdb file.  My database is set to compact on close.  When I close the database I’m getting error: Cannot delete [Filename].mdb because it read-only.  It never happens when I use this database on XP machines or Vista, it only happens on Windows 7 machines.  On some new PCs with Windows 7 it happened almost 100% of the time, on some 2 years old PCs 80% of the time and on some old PCs (3+ years old) I wasn’t able to reproduce the error.  On the same PCs loaded with Vista no errors. 

    On my main machine, I’m using 32bit Windows Vista (Gigabyte GA-P35-S3, Core2 Duo E8400, OCZ DDR2 4gb RAM, 500gb Seagate HD, MOTU 828 MK2 fire wire sound card) and I had no problems at all with Vista.  After the fresh install of Windows 7 – the problem mentioned above.  My feeling that Windows 7 is pretty much as Vista, only more problems introduced.
