Windows 7: Network Shares problem

20 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7057 x64/7068 x86
Network Shares problem

I dont understand what is going on here.

Ok, I have a laptop and a desktop. Desktop is currently running 7 x64 and laptop is running 7 x86.

Few weeks ago I was able to access my LAPTOP from my DESKTOP normally by using the Network in the explorer. I was prompted to key in my Username and Password of my LAPTOP and I gained access after.

Now, I have no idea what happened to my DESKTOP. I am able to access other computers but not my LAPTOP. It keeps stating Network path not found with error code 0x80070035. Troubleshooting indicates no problems found.

I do dual-boot with Vista x64 on my DESKTOP and I am able to gain access to my LAPTOP using Vista.

One of the workaround I got for Windows 7 is to create HomeGroup and use my LAPTOP to join it and I can gain access to Network after that.

So, is this a HomeGroup bug and any fix for it?

EDIT: Never mind, I just re-create my password on my laptop and it's fine now. So, it's really weird.
