Windows 7: Network discovery not mutual

21 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7

The problem with my network discovery not able to be turned on may stem from the error message I get (Error 1079) when trying to activate the UPnP device host from those listed in Services.msc. This error message states "Windows could not start the Function Discovery Resource Publication on local computer.....The account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running in the same process.

I don't have the foggiest notion of what's causing this, but I would like to get Network Discovery Services to stay on.
