2005 and 2 users on one computer....help

my wife and I use the same quicken program on one computer. We have different log on screens. With 2004, it was never a problem to modify the same quicken file on 2 different log in id's. Is this a problem with 2005? Is my wife able to use the same quicken program and file as I use on a different Win XP log in id?
I just tried opening quicken under her login and it asked me if I want to use an existing file or create a new one. I tried pointing to a file that I use on my id and it said disk not available. her account has the same privileges (acct admin) as mine.
Please help
Bill

Try putting the file in a location that isnt in your user folder (i.e., on the common desktop or in a new folder at the root of the hard drive). I suspect that WinXP is like the Mac (which is what I use), in which you cant access other users directories, except the Public folder.
