Fixing unable to Map a network drive, from Windows 7 to Windows XP
I have two computers that are home networked (Windows 7, Windows XP.) I encountered a problem where I could no longer connect to my XP computer from Windows 7. I was able to before. I found the solution:
1. Using the registry editor in Windows 7 goto : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\NetworkProvider\HwOder
2. Right Click on the Dword, ProviderOrder, and click "Modify"
3. Replace, in Value Data, with WDNP32,SnacNp,RDPNP,LanmanWorkstation,webclient
4. Open the Order key and replace with line 3 entry
You should be able to connect now, if equipment and software is functioning correctly.
