Windows 7: Can't change setting in homegroup

26 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Can't change setting in homegroup

If you can't change the settings in homegroup e.g to stop document sharing, or you can't enable printer sharing then make sure your Windows Firewall is on.

I've been using a default setup of an Internet Security product with it's own filewall, but Windows woul not allow me to share a printer or change what I wanted to share.

Error message: "Printer settings could nor be saved. Opperation could not be completed (error 0x0000006d9)"
