I configured my network the way I wanted using it (Printers, file sharing ext.). The cool thing is if you let the trial run out and then unistall it off of both computers it allows you computer to stay configured.

Hope this works 4 u

Please note: If you have a firewall other than Windows Firewall you probably will need to configure network magic to work with it. for more info visit Firewall Configuration
Thanks for bringing it to our attention but,
Why would anyone want to install a program to do something the OS already does?

Network sharing is easy to do on Win7, if one understands the basic principals.
Plus anyone with that knowledge can troubleshoot and help if it doesn't work.

A 3rd party program is both totally unnecessary and hard to troubleshoot if the helpers don't know it.

The procedure I provided to the OP is easy enough.

To make a few things clear.

Seeing the other computer is a first step.
It does mean the network is setup right.

What is needed next, is to allow a user from one computer access to the other computer.

In your case I assume you don't want to restrict certain users, but only want to able to access the shares yourself.

Getting access to a shared folder on another computer is much like login in to a computer when you are sitting behind it.

You need a username and a password.

The computer you try to connect to already has that.
It's the username password you use to log on to it.

Ok, now we have that cleared I'll show you how to go about it.

To make this easy I will give an example.
Suppose your desktop's computer name is desktopPC
Suppose your username on the desktop is budis
Suppose you have a shared folder on the desktop named desktopshare

1. On the desktop pc open explorer and go to the shared folder (desktopshare).
2. Right click on it and select properties.
3. Chose the sharing tab
4. click on advanced sharing,
5. click on permissions.
In the list you see "everyone".
You also see three checkboxes,
6. click on full permissions.
7. click OK until you are back to the explorer.
8. Close the explorer.

Now go sit behing your laptop.

In network you see the desktop named desktopPC

1. double click on it
2. in the dialog that appears first click on "... different credentials..."
3. in the following dialog chose different user, fill in the user name and password you use to login to the desktop!
Click OK.

That's it.

Good luck

ok, iŽll try it...and than iŽll write back
thx

Yes thats true I understand that if you can avoid going through all the steps to install it, set it up, then uninstall it to avoid that. I haven't checked out network sharing yet on windows 7. I just thought that since he seems to be having trouble getting it setup (like i did when i first set up mine) that this program would be good to try.
