It should work if your ipconfig shows an address for IPv6. If you can't get Homegroups to work try this registry adjustment which should enable IPv6.
The issue is not
that I can't enable IPv6 (it works on both systems) and I also enabled homegroups. In fact, after I did, my second computer detected that new homegroup and it was able to join the homegroup.
But the homegroup then doesn't work!
On the first computer the second computer is listed as part of the homegroup, but I can't access any documents, music, pictures, etc. on that computer.
The second computer (the one that joined) doesn't list any
computers as part of the home group, not even the one on which it previously detected the homegroup.
In short: IPv6 is
enabled and working, but the homegroup feature doesn't work for me :-(
