How do you open DBF tables that are in the DATA folder?

I keep getting the "File access denied" message, even after I have closed any localhost session.

Do I need to close Internet Explorer? Restart the computer?

You have to restart your IIS Application Pool:

In your case, you have to restart the pool named "DefaultAppPool". This is also handy when you need to recompile a PRG file that has not been properly released from AVFP worker object.

Thank you. This was simple once understood.

I am using Windows 7, so the instruction was to type ”inetmgr” in the Start Search box.

That took me to the following screen in IIS

I created a batch file and a shortcut of this batch file in my desktop. Inside are 2 lines of code:
net stop w3svc
net start w3svc

Run as admin as needed.

iisreset does the stopping and starting of iis as well.
If the site is hosting more than 1 web site in separate app pools, then you'll want to stop\start just the app pool in iis manager to be less disruptive of other sites
