Glad to hear that my suggestion worked for you. You are welcome for the help.

These types of problems are fairly typical for an upgrade installation.

By the way, the only Windows server software that works with Windows 7 Homegroups is Windows VAIL home server.

I kind of figured that was the case, thats how my server is set up for the time being, you might try using Windows server VAIL, it's free for now anyway.
