Windows 7: Unable to "see full map"

05 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Unable to "see full map"

If I go to Network and sharing, and click on see full map I get: Windows cannot discover any computer or device.
I do have "turn on network discovery" enabled in advanced sharing settings.
I have a book that says network discovery has to be turned on and group policy has to be enabled but it's not in Windows. You have to download "Remote server administration tool"?

I'm using Windows 7 64bit Home Premium

Hello Havoc,

You might see if this may be able to help. It has a list of items to check that will hopefully allow it to work afterwards.

"XP Mode" = simply VirtualPC + WinXP guestOS ? Seamless or full VM?
I am thinking about buying Win7 but want to clarify the feature "XP Mode". As you know Win7 Home contains in contrast to Windows 7 Pro no "XP mode". So I wonder what exactly this "XP mode" is. If I take Win7 Home then install VirtualPC and install WinXP inside as a guestOS VM. Is this the...
