Windows 7: Allow blank password in windows 7 home

17 Mar 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Edition (64 bits)
Allow blank password in windows 7 home


I just bought a WD TV live and I cant access my share directories. I've read that I have to allo blank password (ACCOUNTS: LIMIT LOCAL ACCOUNT USE OF BLANK PASSWORDS) to make it worked. But I don't have LOCAL SECURITY POLICY on my Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools.

Any suggestions ?
