Windows 7: Networking (to file share) between Windows 7 and Windows XP

!! strange behavior !!

so when you (try) to share the root you got the error : xxxxx is not accessible....

but if you create a new folder like "c:\test" you share it (named here test)

then when you connect \\192.168.1.5\test he open directly the folder !! without asking any password ! and you have full access !! (read,write,delete !) hooo gosh i hope this will be fixed in final release..
of course i have checked if i was not have the password recorded in
User account\manage network passwrod
---

work for any folder (no password asked !!)

Thats also what i was getting.
After my post above i set the security defaults back on three shared folders and again get the error message. changed it again and all is well.

Very strange but at least there are work arounds.

This si strange. I can now access almost any file on my W7 box from XP but just right clicking the folder, gong to Share with/ Specific people and adding everyone.
Im wondering if because ive already allowed "Everyone" full access in security this is now the default for this user.
Oh well, at least it works for me.

It might not ask for a user/pass if the account you are connecting from uses the same exact user/pass as the remote machine. Yeah, setting everyone as the security option always seems to fix this problem for lots of people, even in Vista/XP.

Not sure why this perennial problem keeps appearing

Windows 7 X-64 Build 7068

Network map -- Three -- MINIPC RUNNING windows XP, BROWNBEAR running Windows XP PRO 64 Bit and BLACKDOG running Windows 7 X-64 build 7068. Map shown from BLACKDOG.

MINIPC is connected via Wireless card, BROWNBEAR via wired LAN

No probs.

Just ensure Network discover is on (W7) and the Windows XP computers allow connections through their firewalls -- run the network setup on the windows XP machines.

Cheers
jimbo

sometimes just running the "Network Setup wizard" in XP again will fix sharing issues. I had a network glitch on my XP laptop and I just ran the Network set up again and all worked fine. I use windows firewall... it automatically configures itself for networking/sharing. makes things easier for me

and just like jimbo45 suggested... make sure network discovery is enabled.

i can"t resolve this issue . i have win 7 build 7068 (wirless laptop) an winxp sp3 (desktop wired pc). i put both computer in the same workgroup. both are connected throu a router. when i try to acces the laptop from pc i get this error "logon failure : user account restriction. posible reasons are blank passwords not allowed, logon hour restrictions , or a policy restriction has been enforced'". when i try to acces the pc from laptop i get a window that tell me to enter a network password with username.
the problem is that i don't have any password , the desktop pc and the laptop don"t have password. how can i solve that?

Sorry if this has been covered but...

Win XP SP2, Win 7 x64, both wired. Trying to access files on the XP box. I set everything up and it kind of works, but only the first folder I set to share in XP. All subsequent folders give me "Windows cannot access \\xp name\dir" "You do not have permission to access \\xp name\dir. Contact your admin blah, blah, blah."

I have all permissions selected on the XP directories I'm trying to access and the first one selected works fine, I'm able to play audio files from XP on 7.

Any ideas?

Also, is there anyway to share an entire drive? I tried to share them in XP but they never even showed up in 7. These are probably dumb questions but this is the first time I've ever done any of this. Apologies in advance.
