Windows 7: HomeGroup works or not?

Perhaps the installation of the VM software 'automatically' provided a rule to the firewall that was buggering the FW because it tried to provide rules in Vista style as opposed to W7 style, and thus the SR restore the FW rules to default, which allows Home Networking to work....

Just a theory....

Windows 7 Ult x64(x2), HomePrem x32(x4), Server 08 (+VM), 08 R2 (VM) , SuSe 11.2 (VM), XP 32 (VM)
 
 

also from my point since i have vmware workstation the driver (i mean the lot) goes into the work location which is a big nono for homegroup.... (they enforced it like this since if you are going to use it in the workplace you might as well have a server machine (most likely having MS Server or Linux server))
