Sharing files from Seven to Vista and vice-versa

I've two PC one with Vista and the second one with Seven.
I'm able to copy/paste a file from Seven to Vista but not from Vista to Seven (in seven the folder is "shared" but the button "share" is grey and I can't click on it).
I think the problem is relaed to the permissions but I've yet allowed "everyone" and I've not password on both my PC..
Any guide on how to make "shareable" a folder on Seven? THX
