Windows 7: Unable to connect to desktop unit

Unable to connect to desktop unit

  1. Hi,
    I am a bit frustrated after attempting to get my Live Sync Beta to work properly. I have a notebook and desktop connected to a local network, both are using Windows 7 Pro.
    The sync folders show, but when trying to connect to the desktop from the notebook, it does not show the "Connect" link - all it shows is "Personalize | Remove".

    On the other hand, I am able to connect to the notebook from the desktop. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Live Sync Beta on both units multiple times.

    Any and all suggestions/tips will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Jake
