Error: Access Denied

After I create a new item (I've only tested this with the "Item Rating" content type), when I go to edit it, I get this message: "Error:  Access Denied."

I have set myself as having full control over the site, and have also made myself moderator, but for some reason I still get the same error.

If you just create a standard Item, do you also have the problem? It seems that it's a security issue but shouldn't be related to the rating solution.

Best Regards

No, I do not have the same problem with the regular items.

Well, it's quite incredible! It's the first time this error is reported. Which solution did you download? 

What I'd do in your place would be to check the 12\LOGS to see if you have extra information about the error. It sounds wierd.

I downloaded the "SharePoint Document Rating Solution WSS."

I can't find any errors in the Log files.

There could have been a problem with my install.  The .resx files didn't copy themselves over properly so I had to manually copy them.

Anyway, since I couldn't get this stood up in time we're going a different route.  Thanks for your help anyway.  It looked great.

Ok good luck then :). The resources files should be deployed when you activate the application feature "Rating Resources Language Files". It's not an automatic process, you must activate the feature manually.

We did activate the feature, but the resource files were not copied.
