: I have a user who has encountered the following:

: He used an older build (pre-681) of ST 4.2 and had no problem accessing our test project (MS Access, for training).
: He upgraded to 681, but cannot remember if he successfully accessed the test project after that.
: Currently he gets ACCESS PROHIBITED (you do not have access to open this view) on the test project's default view.
: I have also upgraded and have no problem opening that same view. As administrator I have no view and/or project access rights set at all (which should mean everything for everyone).
: The user has no problem accessing our production projects (MS SQL Server, on another STVTS).
: The current work-around is to let the user use another login (works OK) and this is not a problem for us.
: However, I'd like to know what has happened, how it happened and how I can detect it and keep it from happening.

Since others (including you) are able to access this default view, I am led to believe that somewhere there is an access right set in that project that is preventing him from accessing the view. Can he get into any other view in the project? If so, then the offending access right is most likely set up at the default view level. If there are no groups set up in the User Manager, than more than likely it is just his account that is having this problem.

Look for access rights in:
Project -> Access Rights: Project and Views tabs
View -> Access Rights: View tab

If he can open the view but not see any folders, than check the Access Rights on the root folder of the view.

If you still cannot locate any access rights that would be prohibiting this user from accessing the view, perhaps we could arrange to set up your project in-house.

Let me know how this works out for you.
