DB Migration Wizard error opening MDB file

I made a local copy of a network shared database.
When I run the Database Migration Wizard (current version of PgAdmin2 and the 
Migration Wizard) it asks for the Access .mdb file, username and password.  I 
put them in (for administrator).

Then a dialog pops up asking for the MS JET OLE DB Initialization Information.
I don't know what to put in the Provider String slot and I've tried a couple 
read only and read write opening modes.  I always get this error back:

An error has occured in Database Migration Wizard:Database Migration 

Number: -2147217843
Description: Cannot start your application. The workgroup information file is 
missing or opened exclusively by another user.

The shared version of the Access file out on the network requires a username 
and password to access it.  The local copy doesn't (when using Access).

I've tried leaving the username and password blank but then it moves forward 
to eventually give me a read permission error.

I'd love to try this wizard but I'm stumped!  Please help if you know the way 
around these Access databases.  I'm not at all savvy about them.
