Well I just reinstalled Client for Microsoft Network and it now will share files with my Windows Vista laptop no problem. And the Windows Vista shares files with my Windows 7. But if I try to connect to windows 7 from windows 2000 I can see it but when I try and connect it crashes saying memory at 0x0000000 couldn't read at 0x000000 or something like that. And I can't even see my windows 2000 pc from windows 7 anymore. I could at one time but it would never connect.
Is it possible to connect Windows 2000 to Windows 7? I'm sure it is. If anymore info is needed just ask. Just weird that the Vista box will share with both machines but the windows 2K will not connect to Win 7 or vice versa.
Thanks in advance
As far as I know, Jack, the only way to do get this to work correctly would be to map a network drive. That's what I would do. Create a folder on the Windows 7 and 2000 machines that you want to use for sharing. I'm sure there's a post here somewhere about it already but I'm too new to know where it might be.
Any help referencing that post?
