I've actually never had a problem setting this up, but since I have upgraded the laptop from Vista to Windows 7, I can no longer access any network share on the Windows XP pro SP3 workstation. The main weirdness is that Windows 7 does not prompt for credentials
: I can click the XP workstation computer name and then I can see my shared folders, without inputting a username or password.
But as soon as I click on any shared folder it gives me a permission denied message. However, even after doing a net use /delete *, Windows 7 still does not feel like asking my user credentials when I try to access a share on Windows XP.
Obviously, XP will not let it in without a user name and password. I've got another XP workstation somewhere else where this works just fine. Yep, I'm totally stuck here:-)
Many thanks for your help!
edit: mapping a network drive actually works just fine. I do have to check I want to connect with different credentials. So, it appears Windows 7 is trying to use the wrong credentials?
