Windows 7: Can't save homegroup settings. Help

Can't save homegroup settings. Help

Two build 7000 machines in my homegroup... One works fine and I can check/uncheck media to share in the homegroup. The laptop, however, is a different story. When I check a library to share in a home group (pictures, videos, music, etc) then click "save changes" nothing changes. When I can back into my homegroup settings, there are no check marks.

Anyone experience this before?

I would recommend waiting for the RC, torrenting a newer build, or reinstalling.

You should go for build 7077 or wait until May 15th for RC1

I had the same issue but found a workaround. Go to the folder that you want to share and on the top click on "Share with" and choose "Homegroup". This should work, if not, try going to the folder property, Sharing> Advanced sharing, and check Share this folder. Playing around with these should fix it.
