I get a window that advises Windows cannot access\\Desktop\My Pictures.
When I click the diagnose the network problem button I receive a response, "My Pictures is available but the user account you are logged on with was denied access. What exactly is the user account in the context of this? I never was prompted to set a user account up??
Where do you think I might have made a mistake, and how can I resolve the issue???
Thanks for your help!!
You went to work on the Vista machine didn't you?
I hope you kept a record of what you changed over there... 'cause the best thing you can do at this point is put it all back.
On the Windows 7 machine you need to do this... http://www.sevenforums.com/network-s...tml#post684650
See the thing is that an older computer cannot know the future so an older OS will not connect with a newer one. However the newer OS can know the past and, unless seriously braindead, should be able to backdate itself to connect with the older one.
