Windows 7 - folder sharing problem

Q: Windows 7 - folder sharing problem

Every time I turn the computer on, I can see the shared folders that are my two other computers. The problem is, when I close the lid of the laptop and reopen it, I can no longer see the shared folders. Even if I hit refresh multiple times, the folders don't appear until I restart. It is really annoying and frustrating. Please help!!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A: Windows 7 - folder sharing problem

After Standby or Hibernation, you've lost the connection(s) to the other shares

If you have two systems with one share each, then use the command prompt or RUN to access:\\system#1\sharename#1
\\system#2|sharename#2​

I have 2 Ethernet cards on 2 computers and home network connection. Once Internet connection on second computer started to work extremely slow and I reinstalled Windows on main computer. Now Internet connection on second computer is fast, but when I try to give access to folders, it tells me that "An error occured while trying to share...The server service is not started..." From second computer I can see all files on the main computer, and I have good internet connection. So network is installed. Can anybody clarify me this issue?

Me again! Problems with getting into shared folders on my Win 7 pc

Have managed to set up sharing between two pcs, one Win 7 other XP.

Win 7 can see and access all the folders (and now the printer too thanks to your help) on the XP pc - great!

However although the XP pc can see the networked Win 7 folders, when I open the default folder (which incidentally is greyed out) all the sub folders show as empty. Any ideas please?

Also does anyone know if I can network a Canon LiDE 90 scanner which is currently wired to XP pc to my Win 7?

Many thanks

I can only hope that you set up a workgroup and not a Homegroup for sharing because Homegroups are only made for Windows 7 machines.

I'm not sure what you mean by the default folder?

I am using WS2003 and having problems with shared folders in my small office network.

I have no problems sharing folders with the server in which I installed WS2003 while connected to the office network (through a wired internet router).

I have problems with servers in which WS2003 was installed at home ( no other computers on the LAN and only connected to an internet router).

I can share the printers and fax service on the home installed systems , but not folders. The folder share and security parameters are the same as the server that works.

I greatly appreciate any help. Thanks.

I'm trying to access a folder on my comp which is registered to another user. Both accounts are marked as being "computer administrator". Now the problem is....that I can't retreive files from the other users my documents folder. When I try and access that folder in Microsoft Outlook 2003....I get a message from Microsoft Word saying The folder 'C:\Documents and Settings\******\My Documents' isn't accessible. The folder may be located in an unavailable location, protected with a password, or the filename contains a / or \. Now as far as I know, it's not in an unavailable location and it isn't password protected and I know it doesn't contain any /'s or \'s. Any ideas on what the problem might be? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I had this problem it was because I disabled some windows services that were necesary to share files over a network. Try enabling services until it works... That's my tip.

I have one PC with windows 7 and a laptop with windows8. I have made two folders marked for sharing in PC with windows7 and also turned off password protected sharing in that PC. In windows 8 laptop I could see the folders, but can not access it. Both machines are in same workgroup "WORKGROUP". What should I do to access folders in windows 7 PC with read/write permissions in my laptop?

A:File and folder sharing problem

If you want to share those folders without having to bring down the NTFS permissions on the User folder, you can use the Public folders instead, just right click to Properties at C:>Users>Public >sharing tab, then put a check mark to enable sharing, permissions tab>add read/write/full access as desired, click apply, ok etc.

This is a much more secure way to share because the other network users will only have access to the folders you place in the Public folders.

If you require access to the entire User folder on the other machine you can use the same steps for the User folder although it may require edit/add "Everyone" at the advanced Security Settings tab.

If you are running a third party A/V software it may cause problems unless configured correctly.

Hey guys I am having a problem I have a Droid cell phone by Verizon and installed this app which connected remotely via my wireless LAN:
EStrongs
I can connect and even copy files from the folder inside the app (read) but I cannot write files to the folder, and the folder shows as "not writable" inside the apps properties of the folder. So this has to be a permissions thing (I'm hoping).

My network is setup as a work network and
I have shared the folder which is on my desktop the workgroup is WORKGROUP.

I'd be fine with disabling all security on this one folder if there is such a way. But if not I need some way to give my phone and this app write permission on this folder.

Thank you for the help!

I do not want a password or any authentication. I just want to be able to access my \\ipaddress\ files without any other prompts.

Currently i see the folders that i have shared but i can not access the folders. It still asks for a password and username.

In the network and sharing center i have public networking sharing on and password protection off.

Hello,

I would like to create a shared folder between my Windows 7 PC to my girlfriend's Mac. I've learned this is a lot harder to do since we're both on different subnets. Currently, we're relying on the file transferring service from Team Viewer. So is there any way to do this? Would I have to make a dedicated file sharing server? I have a Raspberry Pi that I've been dying to actually put to good use.

I apologize if this isn't the correct place to post this, since it is involving a Mac.

A:Sharing a folder from Windows 7 to a Mac on two different networks

It seems like you could use Windows SkyDrive for this without any problems.

With SkyDrive you can send a link to a SkyDrive folder and give the client write access to that folder.

Though I am not sure of your exact requirements that is about the easiest way I can think of.

I am having problem duplicating the same peer-to-peer Network folder sharing technique using WIN2000Pro versus now in WINXPP...

In my previous peer-to-peer (workgroup) network environment, I used a PC running WIN2KPro as 'server', I created multiple accounts say (Peter, Paul & Mary) as restricted users, then I created 3 'shared' folders called Peter, Paul & Mary, and I was able to assign permission to each person to be only able to have access right to their 'own' folder. These 3 clients (can either be WIN95/98/W2K/XP O/S) will logon with the respective password and only be able to open their only Folder from the 'Server'. This mini network folder storage/sharing security works GREAT! I can even allow Paul to share Peter's folder if I wish!

Now I am replacing the 'server' with WIN XPpro, and I cannot seem to do the same at all. WHat did I miss ? Please help.

A:Windows 7 Folder Sharing Issue

From what your saying you must have set up a Homegroup on the Win7 machine. When you set up a Homegroup in a mixed Op system network the User folder is shared out for some reason, I'm not sure why but that's how it works. Homegroups is mostly made to work with Win7 machines and it's not really for a mixed Op system network though it can be done.

If you want more control over what is shared you should set up a Workgroup on the Win 7 machine and leave the homegroup you created on the Win7 machine.

Hi there.

I'm attempting to share a folder from my desktop, running Windows Vista HP, to my laptop, running Windows 7 HP. I've been able to set up the sharing without any difficulty, but I'm trying to edit permissions so that this folder is only available to my laptop and not any other computer on the network. When I try to add a new set of permissions on PC, I can't search any location other than the name of my PC.

I'm completely lost to be honest! Any help would be much appreciated .

A:Sharing folder from Vista to only Windows 7 laptop

As long as you have a user password on the host PC and no one else knows that password no one will be able to connect to that host PC and see or access those shares.

No real need to set any permissions. And what you are experiencing is normal. You can only see accounts on the local PC.

Afternoon all,
I need to know if the following is possible so that I can attempt this myself?

Scenario:

Wireless network/Workgroup

2 Laptops both running Win7 Home Premium (Call these laptop1 and laptop2)

LT1 has a folder that needs to be shared (shared folder1) so that the user on LT2 can connect and use/update files in said folder (shared folder1).

There is a few more wireless laptops in the workgroup, so the folder on LT1 needs to be secure, access only granted to 1 local user on LT1 and the physical user on LT2 (Which I take it will also need a local user account on LT1?)

Can somebody tell me if this can be done at all?

If so I will give it a go with what I think and how it can be done.

And then post up either way whether I could do it or not.

Cheers,
JimmyRosa

Hi everyone Just wanted to see if anyone here could help me with an issue 8 - sharing folder XP/Vista working in Windows Not I'm having sharing my Windows folders on my home network Recently just setup a small home server to host my media files and some important work files It's currently running Windows but the PCs connected to it are running Windows XP Windows Vista and Windows As you might imagine Windows is Windows 8 folder sharing - Not working in XP/Vista working fine with the sever I can access the public folders as Windows 8 folder sharing - Not working in XP/Vista well as folders that I manually share However when I try to access these manually shared files folders from either the XP or Vista machines I run into permission issues Should be noted that I can access the public folders from XP Vista I just can't access manually shared folders What I'm trying to do is set up sharing on a storage space so that I can put files on there from other PCs and make use of the data redundancy Does anyone know if there are any permissions settings I'm missing I've enabled everything under sharing for the respective users full control If there's any help you guys can give it'd be much appreciated Just let me know if any more info is needed EDIT Ok little update - When I set the permissions to quot Everyone quot for the folders I wanted to share I could finally access them on the XP machine but not Vista for some reason Will work on the Vista one but regardless this obviously isn't an ideal solution because it means anyone who gains access to my network also gains access to these folders

We have had problems since the launch of Windows 10 with Folder sharing. We setup 3 computers in the office that are only feet from each other, all on the same network with File Sharing enabled. We changed the Sharing preferences on the folders to be shared with Everyone. No luck. We enabled the stupid Homegroup, setup every computer on it with the password, We can see the shared printers, but the folders are inaccessible. Whenever we try to open any of the folders on another computer, we get the "Enter Network Credentials" dialog box asking for a username and password. The Microsoft Account login info info doesn't work, I am so lost. This was all working perfect in Windows 7. What gives?

A:Sharing a folder in Windows Server 2003d

Are you pointing the folders to \\SERVER\d$\123 or \\SERVER\123

If the first, you need an admin username and password
If the second, provided both NTFS and sharing permissions give the user access, everything should be fine.

I have a home wireless network, with 3 machines connected:

- 1) XP Media Center SP3 - worgroup HOME
- 2) XP Media Center SP3 - workgroup HOME
- 3) Vista Enterprise SP1 - domain <work domain>

Machine 1 has a shared folder, with wide open access
Machine 2 can see the folder file
Machine 3 cannot see the folder or the computer

All I am trying to do here is give machine 3 access to the folder on machine 1. I am assuming the issue is related to the fact that machine 3 is on a domain rather than the workgroup, but I cannot believe the there not a way to do what I am trying to do. Any help woudl be appreciated.

A:Windows 7 Sharing Problem

Hi black04rex, welcome to Seven Forums.
Both pc's must have:- same workgroup name, a password, (which can be set to log on without it)

To configure Automatic log on

-click Start and type netplwiz in the Search Box and then press Enter.

-click Continue when the User Account Control window appears.

-from the window that appears, verify that the account you want to log on with is selected. Clear the Users must enter a username and password to use this computer option and click OK.

-enter the password for the user account twice, ok your way out, your computer will automatically log on with that user account.

This will also help. Attachment 172676

Thanks Karen,

Found the answer here:





 
Re: WD TV Live does not see shared windows USB drives that are connected via hub








Options












?01-24-2014 12:46 PM


Well, nobody offered any opinion so far, but I was able to solve the mystery.
It is all about the old IPRStackSize of the LanmanServer (Windows NT is greeting us again).
I was taken off, because access seemed basically to work (at least with Windows machines).
But the Windows 8.1 event log then told me very clearly : event 2011, irpstacksize not large enough, please increase.
This event occurred whenever I tried to access the shared drives from my Android devices or especially from the WD TV Live. The only difference netween these 2 systems was that on the Android devices I could at
least see the drives (but could not really open them), while the WD TV Live did not even boither to show me the drives.
 
Now, I have no clue about the actual limits for the IRPStackSize in Windows 8.1 (the values changed from Windows version to Windows version). So I finally used the limit I found for older Windows systems :
32 (x20).
And it works now like a chram as it seems.
By the way - I found stories about older Windows systems, where people increased the value to 20 (x14). So I tried that value first. With the result that I could not access any drive from other network units at
all. So, the default value for this in Windows 8.1 must be even higher than that. I don;t know what it is, but 32 (x20) is obviously higher.
 
Long story short : it is a Windows 8.1 (possibly already Windows 8) problem. And it can be solved by creating manually an entry in the Registry to add the IRPStackSize parameter with the higher value (as you know,
when this parameter is missing, Windows uses a default value, which is obviously too small for drives connected to a hub and accessed by any kind of Linux systems.
I still don't have a clue, why the access request by a Linux based system requires obviously more stack size than a request by a Windows machine. That is still something that makes me shake my head.
 
Here a little procedure copied from Windows NT solutions :
 
1. Run regedit.
2. Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
3. In the right pane, double-click the IRPStackSize value.
4. In the Value Data box, type a value that is larger than the value that is listed.

If you created the IRPStackSize value using the procedure described in step 4, the default value is 15. It is recommended that you increase the value by 3. Therefore, if the previous value was 11, type 14, and
then click OK.
5. Close the Registry Editor and restart the computer.
If the problem persists after you complete the preceding procedure, try to increase the value of IRPStackSize even more. The maximum value for Windows 2000 is 50 (0x32 hex).


NOTE: If the IRPStackSize value does not already exist, use the following procedure to create it:




a.


In the Parameters folder of the registry, right-click the right pane.




b.


Point to New, and then click DWord Value.




c.



Type IRPStackSize.

IMPORTANT: Type "IRPStackSize" exactly as it is displayed because the value name is case-sensitive.

This is a Linux issue, not Windows. Suggest you ask in the Openelec forums. Samba is finicky. I have found that if you just leave the workgroup as "WORKGROUP" on all machines. There is no issue with it.

We are running a network through a "D-Link DSL 504 Router" with an 'Apple G4' and a 'Windows 2000 PC' on a DSL 512kb Broadband Internet Connection.
Everything was OK till recently when the PC's Internet Connection decided to slow down Dramatically (Its now slower than dial-up !)
The interesting thing is that the Apple is running at full 512kb speed, its just the PC's connection which is the problem.
The Modem has been checked by D-Link (approx. Month ago) and everything is fine. Obviously there is something wrong with the Windows PC (since the Apple is performing quite fine) and any suggestions as to a course of action would be greatly appreciated. For instance is there any network settings i can check, change or reset in explorer or where ever?

I have another system named BOOKKEEPING running Windows XP Home, SP3.

I assume I have printer sharing set up correctly as I can print from BOOKKEEPING to "Color Laserjet 2600N on Server" just fine.

I cannot get the 2200DT to show up at all from BOOKKEEPING; it's like it isn't even connected to SERVER.

Hi Everton26 and welcome to the Forum. Bit confused here. At the start of your post you say "I have connected an older Lexmark Z11 printer on LPT1 port. Windows 7 found proper driver and printer works perfectly from that machine" but later you say "My problem is that ONLY the XP machine is able to print on this printer."
If the last statement is correct that would suggest that there is no Windows 7 Driver for his older machine. I have had a quick look online and cannot find one but that's not to say here isn't one. It just seems a bit too old to me but perhaps you will clarify my earlier point please.

A:Windows XP & 7 Printer Sharing Problem

BrianMJC said:


Hi,

I'm having trouble getting my Canon iP100 inkjet to be shared. It's setup and working via USB to my Windows 7 Home Premium x64 laptop, and I'd like to share it with my Win XP Pro x86 desktop. I found a few online tutorials, and am able to get both computers to see each other, but two problems (or one perhaps) are persisting. I cannot get either Windows 7 or XP to recognize the .inf file as the correct driver. Both computers complain that the driver doesn't work with that printer. Win 7 complains when I click to Add Additional Drivers in Devices and Printers, and Win XP complains when I select the printer from the laptop in Start > Printers > Add Printer.

This is the only driver supplied by Canon. I got it online at their own site, though I had to sneak it from an executable that contains a setup program (by copy and pasting it from a temp folder after the exe extracted them). I'd prefer to get Win 7 to recognize the drivers, so that two other XP machines I have in my cellar could use it too if desired without having to install it three times...

Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks!Click to expand...

Why crack open that .exe file - why not simply run it in all the machines on which you wish to share the printer, then open each system up to the notion of file and printer sharing? If it already works in Windows 7 by USB, that machine is the one through which the others all have to go for the share but they still need drivers installed. Try connecting to the XP machine by USB and run that setup .exe. If you would rather have it permanently connected to a PC and not a laptop, swap it to one of the XP boxes.

My goal is to have file sharing enabled without requiring passwords for all the computers on my home network which include a mix of Windows XP Vista and windows I ve found that Windows bit makes it quite difficult to accomplish this After much searching the forums for advise and much experimentation I found an incredible recipe that I have followed with success on different computers The recipe is as follows -------------------------------------------------------------- Run gpedit msc - GO to Windows Settings Security Settings Local Policies Security Options - Disable Accounts Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only Under Vista or some editions of Windows you may not have the group policy editor so as an alternative you can manually add or modify this registry key HKEY LOCAL with sharing 64 bit windows problem File MACHINE SYSTEM CurrentControlSet Control Lsa quot LimitBlankPasswordUse quot File sharing problem with 64 bit windows dword Right click on the drive to be shared and click quot Properties quot - On the Sharing tab click quot Advanced Sharing quot and check quot Share this folder quot - Click Permissions and give the desired permissions to quot Everyone quot - Go the Security page of the Disk properties - If quot Everyone quot doesn t exist in the Group or user name box you must add it - Click quot Edit quot - Click quot Add quot - In the box labeled quot Enter the object names to select type the word quot Everyone quot Or you can click on quot Advanced quot then quot Find Now quot and then pick quot Everyone quot - Highlight quot Everyone quot and check quot Allow quot after Full Control amp Modify if you want that -------------------------------------------------------------- I know it sounds bizarre that such a long procedure would actually work or be required but I have found it so Now however I got a new computer which has the bit version of Windows Home Premium I tried this same procedure using the registry method since Home Premium does not include gpedit but despite trying it twice very carefully when I try to access this computer from anywhere else on the network a window appears which says quot Connecting to NEWCOMPUTER quot with a space below for entering a user name and password Does anybody know a method for making this work on windows bit Also if someone could let me know if what I am trying to do is misguided It it hard for me to think that Microsoft really intended for me to use the above procedure It was so easy to do in Windows ME and then it slowly but surely got harder in every OS release since then until today we are left with the above monstrosity Is what I am trying to do really so evil that Microsoft would go to such extreems to make it so difficult Perhaps using passwords is really the way to go and there is some way to make it painless I really do trust every computer user in my household not to abuse the file sharing mechanism and I really don t want to be entering passwords every time a computer is booted If anyone can rescue me from my extreme state of bafflement that I ve had about windows file sharing for many years now I would be grateful If that is not possible I would be most appreciative even if you could only offer a way out of my current file sharing predicament with the bit OS Thanks Paul nbsp

Hi Everyone,

I have few XP Pro PCs and a windows 7 Pro x64. The XP PCs can see and access the shared w7 but the w7 couldn't. W7 can see the XPs but when i click on the XPPCs it said Windows Can't Access \\XP-pc. I click the Detail and it said Network Path Wasn't found. I tried to Diagnostics and it couldn't find the problem. It looks like firewall blocked to me but i disabled windows firewall and security center from windows services. XPPCs don't have any firewall. from w7 i can ping those XPs. I enabled most of the services related to the network.

From the windows7 can't open the its shared folders either. it said the network path was not fould

OK, so i still haven't quite got my head around file sharing/ACL/Permissions between W7 & XP....it's been a long week
For the sake of arguement, lets say i want to share my music folder.
The music folder is stored on my Vista partition (C) and i want to use W7 (i have ownership of the folder in W7) (A) to share to a XP computer on my home network (trusted). What entries to the ACL do i need for the XP user (admin) to be able to access the file? (hopefully avoiding the everyone group)
Also, in general which entries should be in the ACL? Some folders i have up to 5 different users/groups and on others i only have my account and the admin group. What's the standard?
Thanks in advance for your help

A:Folder Sharing

The XP user does not need to be in the ACL, because when accessing the shared folder you can just enter the username and password of an account that already exists on the Windows 7 computer.

Hi all, I've got a bunch of movies and TV shows downloaded onto my desktop. My shows are saved onto an external HD labeled K: and my movies are saved on an internal HD labeled D:.

From my laptop, I am able to map a network drive to K just fine for streaming video but it does not allow me to map to D. I've checked the share settings over and over and they look the same on both drives. The shared folder names are k and d respectively. I cannot even access the d folder through the network, even though it shows up there. When I double click on it I get:


Code:
You do not have permission to access \\compname\d. Contact your network administrator to request access.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A:Folder Sharing

You may need to use the advanced security settings to share that drive. It's different than the regular permissions settings. I'm not sure why one drive would be different than the other but the procedure below should allow you to access that drive.

To share the entire drive:
Open My Computer -> right click Local Disk D or which ever drive letter your drive is using -> select Properties -> select Security tab -> click Edit button -> click Add button -> enter the name of the User you want to set Security permissions (it is the same user name you've set the sharing permissions for, ex. Everyone will set the read permissions to every user. Put check marks in the boxes for full access and control -> click OK hit apply-> select the desired permissions -> click OK -> wait while permissions are set -> and your Done.

You will also need to use the Advanced sharing tab Sharing>Advanced put a check in the box to share the drive, then click on the permissions tab and "add Everyone" then use the check boxes to allow Everyone full access. Hit the apply button on both windows.

A:Folder Sharing

Hi -

Here is some information from Microsoft on file sharing -

Windows Vista "How-to" - http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...e86151033.mspx

From TechNet - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb727037.aspx

Basically, the systems have to have the same Workgroup, network discovery, file sharing must be on and you will probably find yourself limited to the public folder on each system unless you designate other folder/files to be shared.

I have a home network running a PC and a laptop. The laptop operates on Vista and I recently upgraded the PC from XP to Windows 8. Before the upgrade I was able to quite successfully share a particular file between the PC and the laptop. I'm keen to share the same file again following the upgrade but so far I've had no luck and I find the Windows 8 help to be a touch confusing (that might be just me, of course), more aimed, it seems, at file sharing between computers running Windows 8.

I'd be very glad if somebody is able to offer any assistance or perhaps point me to some step by step instructions that might help resolve the problem.

I have searched and read many posts about this issue and tried things like doing scans, Auto starting services, rebooting, disabling the windows firewall completely, but it makes no difference.

It seems like a bit of a clue that the network DOES appear after a couple of minutes. Any help much appreciated!

A:Internet Connection Sharing problem in Windows 7

I have had exactly the same problem as you on multiple occasions. Opposed to messing around with complicated configurations I would always recomend the use of Connectify (Connectify - Turn your Windows 7 laptop into a Wi-Fi Hotspot).

Connectify turns any computer with a WiFi card into a completely configurable WiFi hotspot and it can be up and running in a couple of minutes.

Another advantage of Connectify is that it doesn't require you to be using a fixed connection (ehternet) to share the internet connection via WiFi. You can be connected to your router via WiFi and be acting as a WiFi network off the same WiFi card.

I hope this solves your networking problems as it did mine.

My Cable Company gave me a free Netgear N600 wireless router and set it up for me. But they wouldn't touch the other two computers or network, that was out of scope and responsibility. So I went to Barnes & Noble and Noble and bought two books #1 Windows 8 Step by Step #2 Set up a Network Step by Step Windows 7.

Suffice it to say that Windows 8 makes it easy it set up a network but none the less it is certainly loaded with a myriad of options and alternatives. There are numerous ways to set up the network and numerous "protections and passwords". Since the network is in my home secure, and there are no other users, I kept it, as they say, simple/stupid.

First I learned that trying to set up a network with three different versions of Windows isn't in the cards. So I upgraded #2 from W7 to W8. Whereas I couldn't print in 7 I could in 8. The older, Slimline isn't eligible. It has all system requirements except RAM. W8 takes 2 GB of RAM. It only has 839 MB. So I can't upgrade to W8. But I can get it on the network and it will open IE and Internet access.

The whole network setup is found in the control panel under network and sharing. But that isn't the place to set it up. It is set up under "charms" *( mouse arrow extreme right to open and down in "settings" click to open, then in pc settings, click to open. Follow the procedures.

I found that the many options for security and protection, ID's and passwords, are so extensive and numerous that they will absolutely drive you "nuts". I keep a notebook and diligently record all of them. A normal person will never remember all.

Sorry but it's just too extensive and diverse to post here but, speaking for myself, I would not have been able to accomplish it without the books Even so it takes due diligence to understand them which I read and reread several times. There are details and many photos/screen shots. Those you cannot get on a forum.

Tips:

* Trying to set up a network with various versions of Windows is asking for trouble. It will work, not too satisfactorily, with Windows 7 and 8. It will NOT work with older versions, Vista and XP.

* Older versions are 32 bit. Newer 64 bit. There's another problem co-mingling the two. Windows 8 comes with both a 32 bit and a 64 bit disc, 2 in the box.

* All computers need to be checked for adequate system requirements. That is available on each one by opening "computer" then "properties".

* If your goal is simply to get each computer Internet access it is very feasible and do-able with different versions. If your goal is to have each computer capable of accessing the data, files, folders of the others, with W7, or Vista, or XP, it isn't going to work for you

Years ago I set up a wired network. It was so complicated and troublesome that I took it down. Now with the advances in technology the current wireless networks are vastly improved.

There is no reason to go back to Windows 7 if the computers have adequate system requirements and all are on Windows 8 64 bit. I think that a retrograde move will be in the wrong direction and from the frying pan into the fire.

Ok, so i have my WiFi max, which is a usb dongle netowork device thing. Back in XP, i used it as a "router" or "access point" for my PS3's wifi internet. In windows 7, i have installed the driver for this dongle, installed the software, but when i connect my ps3 to it, it says "The ip address cannot be found". My computer is connecto to the internet, and i want to share that inernet with the one that the dongle sends out. This worked in XP, i just pressed on the connection my computer was connected to and enabled internet connection sharing. I do the same thing in Windows 7, but it wont work...Any suggestions? Can it be a firewall thing? I have windows firewall turned off, but i guess it still might be blocking it....

I just put an HP Deskjet 5650 on my Win 7 machine. I couldn't share it, I kept getting an error message. I had Windows Firewall disabled in Services (services.msc). I was only able to share the printer after I enabled the Windows Firewall (which I turned off after I was able to successfully share the printer). It took me many hours to solve this prob via search engines. I offer this tip in order to help others that may have the same prob sharing Win 7 printers. (Solved)

A:windows 7 file and printer sharing problem.

Head on over the the Network and Sharing Center (via Control Panel or similar route). On the left side column, there is an option for 'Change advanced sharing settings.' Open up the current profile and see if all your ducks are in a row.

So in the current profile, you're probably going to want to enable:
- Network discovery
- File and printer sharing
- Public folder sharing

Also, if none of that works, try a Homegroup! That makes things really easy. Settings are in Control Panel as well.

Hi, We have a server machine running windows 7. just a few days ago, it started not being able to access its own sharing folders. From network, I can see all other computers(Xps and Window 7s). I can access other computer's sharing folders too. But when I try to access the server's own sharing folder, it gives me this error message:

"Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. To try to identify and resolve network problems, click diagnose. "

Please help!! Our office cannot function without this server working properly! THANK YOU!!

I'm new at this networking stuff, so please excuse the possible lameness of this problem. I have 3 computers (one PC, two laptops) connected to my home network. They are all in my Homegroup. They are all running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit. I want to allow all three to have access to all files and folders on each one. I have a Windows Firewall active. How do I set up all computers to have free access among them? If the answer is too complicated, please direct me to an article or webpage that gives the easiest directions. Thanks very much.

Hi there. I've got quite a strange help request, and i'm not even sure that its possible, but here goes:

I want to set up (advanced) file and folder sharing between my laptop and my PC via a wireless connection. I say advanced, because I have already done it basically, with the "Shared Documents" folders on both computers. BUT, I also want to share the files in the "My Documents" folder on the PC as well. Sounds simple enough...but there's a problem. I want to be able to do this so only my laptop can access the files, and no-one else on the network, and also no-one else on the PC (there are 3 other users) can even see the files...

Some tech specs about the computers: Both are running XP home, and the PC is running Norton Internet Security 2006 (but this shouldn't be a problem)
