XP/2000 Create Windows shares and GRANT access from command line using RMTSHARE.EXE

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/05/27

The NET SHARE does not support the/GRANT option in Windows XP and 2000.

An alternative is the RMTSHARE.EXE tool from the resource kit.

thinking.nerd explains how in Create Windows shares from command line using RMTSHARE.EXE ~ thinking.nerd.

Note I’ve had this fail on one or two machines with this message:

Account everyone is not found.
The command failed: 1788

There I used fsmgmt.msc to manually set the grants.
