Can't delete local dp's on Windows XP
Users are currently unable to delete local copies of data sets they've created. Select "Delete" from the "File" menu, choose "delete local copy" and hit delete, then confirm the action. YOu will get a pop-up window that says "user couldn't delete local copy. This occurs regardless of whether the user is logged in or whether the dp has a data table included. This behavior only occurs on Windows machines.

I helped a user that had problems because of this feature no working. She also was unable to delete a table successfully within a data set. I think when Windows is able to delete a data package we also need to check that Morpho can delete the tables within a data package and add new ones afterwards.

Jing and I had a discussion on this issue today. Shaun is going to be working on trouble shooting the online edit and delete features on the NCEAS Repository. This will help users to delete "network" knb data packages. We will still need to fix the Morpho problem for Windows users. I am currently uncomfortable with having users work with the edit delete features online because of the current problems.
