Is there any source that has all the required steps and services needed to set up windows xp networking with windows 7?
I thought Windows XP can't be used in a HomeGroup? HomeGroup is Win7 only...

I deleted the file and after restarting the machine, works like a charm thanks buddy.

I can't see the appdata folder either. I am in the windows/serviceprofiles/localservice folder, but I don't see it.

I just got my wife a laptop for Christmas, and am very frustrated that my desktop which is in charge of homegroup can't log off of homegroup or change the password. I don't even remember setting up homegroup. Peer Network Grouping service can't be started.

Found the folder by using the start menu search to find how to show hidden folders. Got it working by deleting the file, leaving the homegroup then restarting a new homegroup. Thanks.

Deleting "C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking\idstore.sst" doesn't help and it doesn't seem to get recreated.

These services won't start:
Peer Name Resolution Protocol - Error 0x806320a1: 0x806320a1
Peer Networking Grouping - won't start because above won't start
PNRP Machine Name Publication Service - won't start because above won't start

Running Troubleshoot Home group didn't refresh.

I can't Leave the HomeGroup because windows couldn't remove your computer from the homegroup.

I can't see any Windows XP Computers on Windows 7 computer because of this.

Is there any source that has all the required steps and services needed to set up windows xp networking with windows 7?


I have the same problem. "idstore.sst" was deleted from the PeerNetworking folder, but was not recreated upon restarting. Same error code when attempting to start PNRP. Would it be possible for someone with a functioning idstore file to upload it for download? I don't know how else to recreate the file, or if that will even fix the problem.
