Media sharing disabled

Q: Media sharing disabled

I keep getting an error message in Media player 11 on Vista that says "media sharing is currently disabled, either because sharing service is not running, or or firewall settings have changed. To restart sharing, you must first confirm sharing settings." I do this and everything as far as sharing is good including firewall settings. Any help would be great. Thanks

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.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

OK here goes...When I go to Network and click on the mediaplayer shared device it comes up with media player and then a message saying that media sharing is disabled, however it aint disabled and all options are turned on. I just cant figure this one out whatsoever.
Anyone know a fix for this one because I am totally stumped.

A:Media sharing says disabled, but its not!

OK, update: Got fed up with that, so I did a repair install and alls OK now.
You know, the repair install in a lot better than XP..I actually kept all my software and their locations intact. Perfect. Took about 4 hours though, but worth it.

Can file sharing be temporarily disabled in windows without affecting any other services. I guess what I am looking for is an "on or off " - switch" without having to disable file sharing the tradional way (rebooting etc). Is there a option? Windows service etc...

I would just really like to know how to turn it off....lets say for 5 minutes or 10 minutes at a time and easily resume all shared folders and services.

I really hope im just not overlooking the obvious!

Well, I'm not sure what to do here. Up until a few days ago I was sharing my media with all computers on my network on my wireless router.

Now when I log into windows and open WMP 11 it says that I am no longer sharing media, would you like to turn on sharing? So I say yes and confirm to share my media to all devices on my network, mainly my PS3.

I uninstalled it and reinstalled it (well it actually just reverted back). I also checked to make sure that Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service is set to automatic in Admin tools. And also checked windows firewall that it allows the service.

So I am at a loss here, I don't know how to get my media sharing capabilites back. I know its not my PS3, as I am sharing media from my laptop right now. Any suggestions?

Thanks High

Sonnyboy quote:
PS3 and Vista Sharing Sorted
Found it. Disabled IPSEC Services and rebooted my router and hey presto media sharing in vista with PS3. Although I had disabled this before and restarted my computer I had not rebooted the router (ie turned it off and on again). This was the important thing on my set up and I missed it.

Funny thing is IPSEC Services do not have to be disabled in XP.

Hope this helps someone.

This actually worked for my Windows XP, I am now able to share, but is this a safe thing to have turned off?

Every since January th of this year I have been trying to fix a very annoying issue with windows media player How It Started Back in January my dad's computer constantly kept freezing over and over due to him having way to many podcast on his computer I'm the only one who knew how to fix it from crashing and so I tried to delete some of the memory off the computer however when the memory was low I noticed sharing turn Windows refuses Player media Media on to that a few programs including media player were not functioning correctly I was able to fix them but then I noticed that media player's entire library was missing which Windows Media Player refuses to turn on media sharing made me think if I restarted the computer it would fix it Sadly it didn't but I was able to find tutorials on how to restore the library back to MP but the thing is before I attempted that I went into media player with administrator on in hopes it Windows Media Player refuses to turn on media sharing would make a change Of course it didn't Windows Media Player refuses to turn on media sharing but now there's a issue that I face and I keep running into dead ends Every single time I try to turn on media sharing in the WMP library when I check both options and then click ok it doesn't do anything No matter how many times I try to press it nothing happens and also what I find strange is that the ok button has a administrator prompt shield on it now Kind of like it's trying to ask for permission but fails before it can do that The solutions I have tried I have tried dozens of solutions and yet none of them fix the issue I tried using regedit exe and tried fixing it's registry but that didn't do anything I tried fully resetting WMP entirely but that doesn't work either nor does using service msc The only lead I have that something may be broken is that when I looked inside service WMP Network Sharing Service cannot startup At this point I'm pretty burned out of ideas and nbsp this may be the most confusing bug I've ever faced And now since Media sharing doesn't work I can't stream music to my xbox If you somehow know the solution please tell me

Hello all,

I have my main media desktop in the living room setup to share the meda on the "E:" drive. On my Windows 7 laptop using WMP12 i am able to find the shared media library and access for playback. However I am having a difficult time trying to do the same on my other desktop in my room running XP WMP11. I cant seem to find out how to stream the media files from the living room desktop via the WMP11? is this even possible, or is there a software i could use to do this if WMP11 does not support it? i tried XBMC but i keep receiving playback error. I wish there was a WMP12 for XP to make things easier but unfortunately there isnt

please help..

I have Vista Home Premium and am trying to run "TVersity Media Server" to share videos to my XBOX 360. From the help screens for the application, I noticed that Windows Media Sharing must be disabled, or the 360 will not see TVersity server at all. I have Windows Media Center (included with Vista Premium). I believe I have found the option to disable sharing in "Network and Sharing Center". However, the "CHANGE" button doesn't do anything! I can click it, but it doesn't do anything! Any ideas? This is pretty much a clean install of Vista. Thanks!

Hey everyone,

I am having troubles sharing my Windows Media Player 11 library on my Vista machine with my Windows XP computer.

Both players are sharing media the same way and automatically allowing new devices to connect.

My roommates computer see's both libraries as well as my Vista Computer. The XP machine does not see the shared library.

I have Trend Micro PC Cillin on my Vista machine. It is connected by cat5 to a Linksys Wireless router in gateway mode.

On my XP machine i have AVG antivirus with no firewall installed. It is connect to the Linksys wirelessly - bu so is my roomates laptop.

On both machines i have the latest .net framwork installed and on the xp machine i installed windows media connect.

I cant figure it out, i think it is a software problem and not a physical network problem.

any ideas?

I'm trying to share my windows media player library that is on my win 7 pc with my xp laptop.

I can navigate from my laptop to folders on my win 7 pc and play files that way but I'm trying to get the library option working.

Both computers are in the same workgroup and are both visable in the same workgroup from my xp laptop. However if I go into network on my win7 pc I can see the laptop in the computer section but not in the media device section.

When i then go into the sharing options on the win7 windows media player i can not see the xp laptop so I can't allow sharing.

I guess the problem is that my xp laptop is only showing up as a computer and not a media device? anyone know why this is?

I have turned of my firewall to check that and it has no effect.


A:media sharing in windows media player 11

You can't share Library's with any computer other than Windows 7. Library sharing can only work if all the machines in the LAN are Windows 7. Although you should be able to stream and share your music using Workgroups.

You should be able to share the WMP files by making these adjustments. Click on more media options to allow for media sharing with your XP machine.

I have a home computer network between two computers. I would like to share my media from Windows Media Player 11 with my other computer. The music that I would like to share is the main computer that has the router and all connected to it. I know that under the options in Media Player, under the library tab there is a configure sharing button. I click that, check the "share my media to:" but my other computer connected to the network is not listed. Is there something I have to do with firewall on either computer? Please help.

I am using XP and have been trying to get my media to share to my xbox 360 and at first the system said I had an ip address issue, even though I could connect to the internet. Now however, it won't find the pc. Upon going to Window Media Player's library/media sharing section, I am prompted with this message: Media sharing has been turned off because a required Windows setting or component has changed. I have tried all of the obvious quick fixes and nothing works, does anyone have any suggestions as Microsoft is less than helpful telling me something, somewhere has changed? Thank you.

connection details

< ROUTER> ---> cable from router LAN to laptop Ethernet connection ---- > < LAPTOP >

what firewall / security suite do you have or ever had on the laptop
has it ever worked

lets also try in safe mode - see below
can we see an ipconfig /all - see below

Safemode with networking
with a cable connected from PC to router
check the cable - see if there is a light on the router accosiated with the cable port used , also check if you have a green/yellow light on the PC LAN port
- try safemode with networking
as the PC starts keep tapping F8 - a menu appears - choose
safemode with networking - see if that works
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

First if this is not in the correct category please move it I have a fairly extensive collection of movies TV series as well as personal pictures and Sharing Media home videos I would like to make these avaialbe to my kids one of which lives in another city as well as a couple of friends as well as myself being able to access them when I Media Sharing am either on holdiays or at someone else s home Of course security is a major issue and while I want to make the above available I don t want them to have access to my entire system or network In addition I want them to be able to view the media but not change delete or rename anything From my limited understanding of networking I believe there is choices The first would be to buy network drives hooked directly to the router and only have the shared media on these drives I would assume this would be the preferred way of doing it but the problem is that network drives are quite a bit more expensive and I would have to buy a second router as I would not have enough ports available on my existing router The second would be to have external USB drives attached to two of the computers in my netwrk but am unsure if these could be accessed through the interent Assuming they can be will having someone access these drives slow down the systems they are attached to How do I allow sharing of the media files only while still having shared access to other files and printers on my network only and not avaiable to people I want to give access to the media files only Would the speed be adequate to permit watching video over the itnernet without freezing The third would be to buy a router with a USB port The problem here is that I have only seen routers with one USB port Even with a TB drive I would not be able to have everything on that drive I was looking at the Belkin router which has a USB port but from reading one of the reivews of this router it was noted that access to the drive connected to the USB port was very slow They didn t go into detail as to what quot slow quot was so don t know whether it was simply slow in comparison to what the performance would be if connected direcdtly to a computer or if it was quot slow quot to the point that one could not really watch video as it would be freezing all the time The upside of this setup is that it allows a guest password and that you can set it so the guest only has access to the drive connected to the USB port on the router and nothing else on the network I also read a review on a D-Link with a USB port and one of the criticisms was that only one user could access the USB drive at a time This may also be the case with the Belkin however the review didn t mention it so don t if that is the case but if it is then that would not be the answer either I would appreciate knowing whether this can be done and what would be the best way to do it while maintaining security and not killing the performance on the network or computers the drives are connected to Thank you nbsp

What should I do, where should I go to set up sharing folders or whole computer?

Please, someone.

I recently installed Pinnacle's InstantCopy v. 8 and, during the install, was warned "Installing this program will change some settings and may render other applications useless." (paraphrasing). I agreed and, sure enough, all of my other CD- or DVD-burning app's suddenly would not work, including Nero and Windows Media Player. Nero gave me the error "Drive is in use by another application" and Media Player simply won't recognize my CDRW drive as a recording device. I have managed to restore functionality to Nero by disabling Windows' IMAPI device, but don't know what to do to be able to resume burning CD's with Media Player.
I've uninstalled InstantCopy and this hasn't helped. There must be some registry value or driver modification that I need to reset. Can anybody give me any advice?
Thanks in advance for all responses!

How exactly do I refresh what is being shared? I don't know if "refresh" is the right word..

I've recently been sharing video files to my 360/PS3 using the built in Windows 7 sharing. and the files don't show up right away. I don't know what causes them to show up, I just have to believe they will be there eventually. How can I fix this?

I have the newer Playstation 3, 80GB model. I am using a Netgear(Comcast Cable) Modem/Router. I have the playstation 3 connected via WiFi, and it works fine. I have enabled Media Sharing before with my laptop, and I am sure it worked. I would double check, but the laptop doesn't work anymore.

However, when I activate media sharing on WMP11, and make it so any device should be able to get the media, there is no connection to the PS3.

I am not sure if there is a special setup for the PS3, or if I need a program. According to the F.A.Q. on several sites, I have done this correctly. Should the PS3 be showing up in my networks? It isn't showing up, and I am at a lose of what to do.

I posted this a while back, but didn't really get an explaination, theories, or solutions.

I have a basic Home Network. 4 computers on the network. Mix of wireless and wired computers. I can send files between the PCs just fine.

For some reason the Playstation 3 does not show up under the network. I can seem to manage to get media sharing working ONLY if I have the PS3 hard wired to the modem, but not wireless, if the PC is wired. If the PC is wireless and the PS3 is wireless it works, but not wired.

For some reason I cannot get cross connection, for lack of a better work, media server working. Any insight? I have a crappy netgear Wireless Comcast router if that helps.

Edit: Apparently wireless to wired doesn't work regardless of PC or PS3.

so i know you can share music through your network from your computer to your 360. ive got 3 computers on a network that can see eachother and share files. i know its necessary to run a media sharing program such as wmp11 to share the media to my 360, but for some reason its not working. ive tried a few solutions suchs as opening on my router. i probably didnt open them right, so someone help me. i really want this to work so i dont have to import all my music and waste hdd space on my 360 or cd's getting it all there.

I haven't been able to find any info concerning sharing the media player of one computer with another on a local network. Can this be done? if so, how?

A:Sharing media player

Programs play on a computer. A media player is a program.

You can move a program to anothe rcomputer but not 'share' the execution of the program between computers.

You can share data files that contain music, video, etc. but they will need to be played on a single computer.

Is there any technology that allows the sharing of media player?
Such as, I am watching a movie on DVD or VCD and my sister can use her computer to view what I am watching. I can send pics by e-mail, I can send streaming video, videos created by webcam, etc, so I wondered if media player sharing was possible. Or copy a DVD somehow on a file and send to my sister so she can open that file and view the same DVD on her media player.

You can copy DVD's only if you have a DVD-RW, or DVD-R. And, a burning program, such as Nero.

is she on the same network, or across the Web? Also, which version of WMP and Windows are you using?

I have four PC on my network, two XP (XP-1, XP-2) and Two Vista (Vista-1, Vista-2). All are up-to-date. All running Media Player 11.

I am trying to share (serve) media mainly from XP-2.

When I open the Library | Media Sharing dialog in Media Player on either of the Vista PCs it lists all three other PC in "Share my media to:" and sharing works fine.

When I open the dialog on either XP PC; I only see the Vista PCs and not the XP PCs. Since I am mainly trying to see the media on XP-1 served by XP-2 this is very frustrating.

On the Vista PCs you can show the Entire Network and it lists the Media Servers on both XP PCs.


I have tried all the obvious things like turning off firewalls etc.

I am on a home network (wireless), and would like to share my media with my XBox 360 and other laptops. When I go into WMP, and click Media Sharing, a window pops up with an unchecked box which says "Share my media". I check the box and click OK, but then WMP freezes for a while, then comes back but with nothing changed. The box remains checked but I cant actually say ok. The only way I can get the window to go away is by clicking Cancel or the X. also, the OK button works fine if the box isn't checked.

What could possibly be causing this? Other computers share media on the same network without any problems.

Up until last night I had my Xbox 360 connected to my PC so I could listen to music off my computer on my 360 using WMP 11. Last night I added another PC to the network and now the 360 cannot connect to my PC to share music though it can get the Xbox live connection fine. When I run the Media Test on the 360 it fails on "PC Selected"

Here's my setup

Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine.

Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

My task manager was disabled by some virus that apparently got into my system through a USB drive, and all media files were deleted (or went missing?)

I read from posts of similar problem from other members on BC and applied the fixes (recovery console + Combofix). This worked and Task Manager was enabled, but I still cannot find my media files. Can I recover them?

Secondly, I ran updated NOD32 to fix the USB Drive, but it detected nothing. Then, I used Linux UBUNTU to manually delete 2 files from the USB Drive (one was "autorun" and the other was some "tel.exe"). But today again, when I plugged in the USB Drive, the same thing happened again (task manager disabled + media files deleted), and I again did the fix successfully. How can I get rid of this permanently? Is there an antivirus which can clean my USB?

I have a Core 2 Duo PC running XP Home and Vista Ultimate on two separate bootable drives. In addition I have a laptop running XP Home. All systems have WM Player 11 installed. Vista and XP systems separately network well with the laptop.

When media sharing I can see the vista machine in laptop list but not the other way around. Media sharing with the PS3 works well with both XP machines. However, when running vista I am not able to share as the PS3 does not show in the media player sharing list. I am sure it has nothing to do with my netgear DG834gt router because the settings are the same for both XP & Vista. It seems to me that Vista has some quirky security feature that prevents the PS3 from connecting.

Anyone else had this problem and managed to fix it.

The biggest new thing to media heads which Mac users have been enjoying as a standard for a while is the ability to stream songs videos or control playlists and libraries over a localized network I've been waiting for this and I've been reluctant to buy alternatives like wireless speakers and whatnot because I think all the essential elements are in place and theres no need to spend any money on Solutions Media Alternatives Sharing & equipment I already have This scenario is very typical you're sitting at home in your flat or in your room you got - friends over and all or almost all of them have Media Sharing Alternatives & Solutions got some sort of computer beneath their fingertips They have music videos pictures Media Sharing Alternatives & Solutions even programs they want to exhibit for some reason I don't know about you but I'm sick of playing Media Sharing Alternatives & Solutions DJ to the wim of everyone i have visiting because my playlist is never enough So i want them to do it them selves without us having to change places on a frequent basis So I see a few solutions Using Windows 's built in Media Sharing which allows you to either stream media or play songs directly on a remote computer and it is compatible with Windows Media Player and even Foobar Beta You can use VLC to stream videos and music and you can also use playlists Foobar 's UPNP component which allows you to stream music from one computer to another or control whats playing on the other computer Foobar 's HTTPD component which allows you to control the playlist via a HTTPD interface Use Windows Network to play files from one computer to another BUT None of these solutions are what I want Consider Flash music videos Spotify Grooveshark and a ton of other media distribution applications that still makes me have to play DJ This will not do So I'm looking for something a little special not sure if it even exists but a network driver that allows sound output from the Windows mixer to be streamed from one computer to another or to a quot server quot This way I people could play whatever they wanted without me having to switch between my work laptop and my crappy stationary quot media center quot Sorry for the long post P and thanks for your thoughts

You might try setting up a Windows Home Server computer. That allows you to stream music from there I think, but I don't know how that would work for your suggestion.

I live in a flat with 5 other students. We all share a network through a wireless router. 2 of us run XP, 3 Vista. The flatmates with Vista can view & play each others libraries in WMP, us with XP however don't have the luxury. I know I can set my library as public, meaning those with Vista can use my library, but how do I use theirs?

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
PING <computer name>

<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

Check your Services are Started on all PCs:

Computer Browser
DHCP Client
DNS Client
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
TCP/IP Netbios helper

Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.

I'm having a problem trying to share media between my PC and xbox 360.

In Windows Media Player 11, when I go to [Tools] > [Options] > [Library] > [Configure Sharing], check "share my media" and click OK - the OK button greys out for a while then comes back, and nothing else happens.

I'm supposed to get a list of machines in my network, but it isn't showing anything. There aren't even any errors.

Any idea on how to solve this?

I was wondering if someone could help me with "Media sharing" between XP and
Vista. I can play media from the XP machine on the Vista machine, but not the other way around. I have tested to connect a another Vista and from that one I can play media and see the first Vista machine.
Is there a limitation here or have I done something wrong?

*i can play media from XP to vista, but not from vista to XP.
*in the XP WMP setting->Media Sharing dialog box-> i can see my vista.
*in the vista WMP setting->Media Sharing dialog box-> icannot see my XP .
with 2 vista machines "media sharing" works great -but not from vista to xp..

I am trying to enable Media Sharing with my Xbox 360 and I have already read threads here with the same problem, but mine goes one step further. I will explain the problem in full and all of the steps I've currently taken.

I have Windows Media Player 11 and Windows XP, Zune also would not work.

I go to Library and Media Sharing, the window pops up, I click enable, and it freezes for about 10 seconds. I went to run and typed in services.msc. I try to enable Windows Media Network Sharing Service and click Automatic and start but get "error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start". I then set SSDP Discovery Service to Automatic and it is running. I then go to Universal Plug and Play Device host, and attempt to do the same, but when I click start I get "error 126: The specified module could not be found". l


A:Windows Media Sharing WILL NOT WORK!!!

Go to the Windows Media Network Sharing Service, right click and go to Properties. Go to the Dependencies tab and look at the services listed. Check and ensure all of these are running and set to automatic, which it sounds like you may have already done.

If you have, check out this link, see if you can make anything of it:

You can always move it out of your documents folder, say to a folder on just c: and then they would be able to access them with no problem.

I'm trying to share my music/video/pictures library over my wireless network, but the only thing that I can see on the remote units is whatever is in the recently added "playlist".

Everything seems normal when opening the library on the "server". If i look in the Network sharing center, the library can be seen from all remote computers. All music shared is mixed between external and internal hard drives

It seems like nothing else than recently added files under the Music folder can be shared.

Has anyone seen anything similar

I had WMP sharing setup just perfect for the last year or so. But in the last few months I had a few friends bring over their xboxes and so the devices on my media sharing list got a but out-of-date with a lot of entries, so deleted them "assuming" I could refresh the list.

Now all the devices are gone and I cannot find a way to refresh the list and just see the devices actually on my network right now. Anyone know how to do this?

Media sharing ON seems like a convenient idea that would be beneficial in my home "workgroup". Does it work smoothly? Or does it lead to slowdowns, difficulties on the network?

Just a desktop and laptop for now. Later, a smart tv.


A:Downside to setting Media Sharing to ON?

Keep media sharing/streaming on if you need to use DLNA or Samba protocol for easy media streaming. There should be no downside to this (and to your internet connection) as long as the bandwidth is sufficient. On wired networks, you should have no issues streaming 1080p H.264 videos on LAN as long as the bandwidth is 100 Mbps or 1 Gbps. With WiFi, you run in to bandwidth/latency issues unless you're using 5 GHz 802.11n or 802.11ac which I highly recommend if you choose the WiFi route.

I have been streaming 1080p videos (from TV apps or DLNA server) with my smart TV while downloading/streaming from my 3 other devices without a single streaming lag from DLNA server to Smart TV over WiFi 5 GHz 802.11n.

I have an Xtreamer media player which is connected to the my home network. Previously, I share my folders in order to stream the media from my Win7 Ult PC to my Xtreamer.

Unfortunately this is not working anymore. I tried to do many tweaks in my network but with no use. What is confusing me is that I am able to access the shared folder in the PC using my Win7 Ult laptop. Moreover, I can access the shared folders in the laptop from Xtreamer. Also, i can access Xtreamer from my PC using FTP. So there must be a problem with the way my folders are shared, assuming Xtreamer is running Linux.

I tried to disable my firewall (Comodo and Win Firewall) and Avast antivirus but with no use. I have rested and restarted both my PC, Xtreamer, and even the router.

Anyone have suggestions?

Thanx all.

Hello Forum

I've been trying to share a folder from my win8.1 laptop. Primary use will be to watch movies on Android Apple tablets and phones, and a raspberry pi running xbmc.

On the android tablet, using ES File Explorer, I can't get past the password prompt. I've tried logging in as my self, I've tried anonymous, always asking for a password, and there is no correct password.

I've read several guides that suggest it should be easy, but I'm struggling at this one step.

I'm most frustrated, because I know I solved this about 3 months ago, and was able to connect from a boxee box. Unfortunately, I didn't bookmark, and my google-fu is coming up short.

The point of Windows Media Sharing is not to be some sort of P2P application, but rather like a radio station that you can tune into specific tracks. If you don't already own the music you're trying to burn then it's really not a legal practice you're getting into.

hey there,

In the Network and Shaing center, Network Discovery, Printer Sharing, File Sharing and Media Sharing are all disabled. (Password protected sharing is not)

I would like to enable these features, but attempting to do so yields the critical error, "The specified service does not exist as an installed service". I don't have a vista installation disc, so I can't do a repair install. Attached is the relevant Event Viewer log event (1050).

In the Services configuration window, I have ensured the following services are all enabled (as I understand they are related to network sharing)
Application Layer Gateway Service
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness (NLA)
Plug and Play
Remote Access Auto Connection Manager
Remote Access Connection Manager
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
however, the Terminal Service as referred to in the event viewer log does not seem to exist ( the error would suggest.)

Still no luck. Any ideas?

A:error enabling File and Media sharing

Hello, and welcome to the Vista Forums!

Let us see what we can do! Please follow all three steps, even if Steps 1 and 2 resolve all problems.

STEP ONE (registry backup):

ERUNT - Download here
Why? This ensures we have a valid registry backup. ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) allows you to store a complete backup of your registry and restore if needed. Removing modern malware infections often requires making changes to the registry, and a corrupt registry can prevent a system from booting. Compatible with Windows NT, 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, 32 & 64-bit versions.

Download ERUNTDouble-click erunt_setup.exe to run.Follow the prompts and install using the default configuration (setup language, install location, shortcuts...).Say No to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later.
Start ERUNTChoose a location for the backup
The default location C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT\[today's date] is preferred
The first two check boxes are ticked by default (System registry and Current user registry).Press OKWhen prompted, click YES to create a new folder.Progress bars will show backup status.A confirmation window will popup when complete. Click OK to close.
STEP TWO (Service fix):

Please import the registry fix attached to the bottom of this post.

STEP THREE (SFC Scan - about 15 minutes running time):

Right, please run steps 1, 2A, 3 (about 15 minutes), 4, 5, and then Step 1 from the top yellow box, but only follow this last one if Integrity Violations were found. Please upload the new sfcdetails.txt from your Desktop. System Files - SFC Command
Good luck! Step 2 is the resolving step - hopefully!
