Stream Windows 7 Library to Windows XP PC Using WMP?

Hey guys,
I'm having trouble configuring sharing in WMP between my Windows 7 laptop and XP desktop. I've gotten it to be able to stream my XP media onto 7, but is there any way I can make the 7 stuff stream to the desktop? I would like to work within WMP if possible. Thanks!

Windows 7 7201 Library bug
Just did a clean install of 7201 and it seems that anything that is added to the library is not 'searchable' within the library or the referenced folder itself. Searches from the root directory will return proper results though.
