Still can't access Win 7 share from XP machines
I have what appears to be the same situation. I cannot access a shared folder on my Windows 7 laptop from the XP Pro computers on my network. They see the laptop and under that the shared folder, but can't open it.
I got the User and Public Sharing screens (shown in Ryo's post) set to "enable" everything for everybody. In Advanced Sharing for that folder I have enabled everything including Read/Change for everybody. In Security I have given Full Control to everyone.
This is maddening. Does anyone have a further idea?
