I keep getting error code -1073741819 when running rmtshare. What does it
mean?
I run it under Windows XP Professional, trying to administer my file shares.
(Right-clicking a folder and selecting "Folder Properties" or "Sharing and
Security..." is for some reason just ignored by Windows XP....)

If the machine has IIS installed, remove and reinstall it. There is a bug, untraceable so far, that will prevent folder properties from working. It is related to the IIS install and removing and reinstalling IIS will often correct it.
