Windows 7: File Sharing... DENIED


11 Sep 2009   #1

Windows 7 Pro, XP Pro
 
 
File Sharing... DENIED

I have a desktop running on a Windows 7 Pro OS and a laptop running on XP Pro; both are connected on a linksys router. Windows 7 machine is connected via lan cable and lappy: wirelessly

Password protection has been set to off in my Windows 7 machine.

I can access certain XP folders which I have permitted to everyone from my Windows 7 machine but not the other way around. An error message keeps popping up "Access is denied" "<something about a path not being correct>" everytime I access Windows 7 folders from my XP machine.

Both are in the same workgroup.

I can only access Windows 7 files that have been transferred in the Public folder

I want to access the files that I permitted to everyone on their location but how do I do that if I keep getting this error message. HELP

Try creating the user account and password on the Windows 7 machine that you are using on the XP laptop. Even if you don't use that account on the Windows 7 box it may be helpful having there ... and if you're using the same account name on both systems make sure the passwords are the same too.

Was there ever a resolution to this problem??
I am having the same exact problem and cannot figure it out for the life of me.

Just about everyone has this problem. There is a solution to it every day, so try search for something like "access denied" in this forum section.

I've been searching.
I've already tried the windows firewall rule change, and i've done this
Unable to access network resources on non-Windows 7 systems from Windows 7 PC | Windows Reference
Any other things?

EDIT:
I've GOT IT!
Sharing and Permissions[2]=Networking%20Internet
simple as that.

How to Set Up Folder or Drive Sharing in Windows 7 that Actually Works

How to Set Up Folder or Drive Sharing in Windows 7 so it Actually Works
1. Right-click on the folder or drive icon to be shared; then select “Properties” from the dialog box.
2. Select the “Security” tab.
3. Click the “Edit” button.
4. Click the “Add Button.
5. Click the “Advanced” button.
6. Click the “Find Now” button.
7. In the list that appears, select “Everyone;” then click “OK.”
8. The “Everyone” name will now appear in the “Select Users or Groups” dialog box. Click “OK.”
9. The “Permissions for <object> dialog box with reappear with “Everyone” in the “Group or user name” list. With “Everyone” highlighted, put check marks in the boxes to assign the permission you want. (I assign full control because my workgroup network is closed).
10. Click the “Apply” button; then the “OK” button.
11. In the <object> Properties dialog box, click “OK.”
12. Again right-click the drive or folder icon; then select “Share with;” then “Advanced sharing.”
13. In the <object> Properties dialog box click “Advanced Sharing.”
14. Put a check mark into the “Share this folder” checkbox at the top of the dialog box.
15. Enter the name you want into the “Share names” box (or accept the default); then click “Apply;” then click “OK.”
16. Click “Close.”
The drive or folder is now shared with everyone on your network and they have the permissions you granted.
