further to what Matthew has stated, I do exactly what I believe you
are doing. We are running NT4 and I load the reference library onto a
network drive, set the file 'attributes' to read only though the 'OS' and
everything is fine. We also get a message when loading the library, but it
is only a warning that the file is read-only and do we want to continue.

Hi Luo:

Did you set it to "Read-only" using the database permissions, or the file
system permissions?

Use the database permissions, and see how you go there, if that's not what
you did.

Dear All, 
As I had specified in the previous mail, I had put the library on the server
and shared them with others. For security, I set the library "read only" for
others, and only I get the full authority to access and modify the
footprints. But when other designer try to add the library to their PCB edit
environment, Protel alerts "file is not recognized", when I open all
authorities to everyone, then they can use the library correctly, But I am
afraid that is not security. How can I accomplish my original purpose?
Waiting for your good idea! Thanks.
Best Regards,
