Windows 7: Sharing Libraries Between Users

01 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
Sharing Libraries Between Users

Alrite, so I have Windows 7 Ultimate. I have 2 user accounts setup, one I use and the second I have setup just for Itunes(I sync my friends Ipod on this account). I decided I wanted to share the media from the second account so I can just listen to it on my main account. I know Itunes doesn't have this option, so I was playing around with Media Player and I see that it shows other Libraries. I went and added all the music from my second account into the Media Player Library, went into my main account and checked and none of the music is showing. It is just showing some preloaded music. For the life of me I can't get it to work, I have played around with sharing and other Network settings but can not get it to share libraries between users. Does anyone know how to get this working???


EDIT: Nevermind I FINALLY just got it working it was a sharing setting on my secondary account
