Win 8 Release candidate 8400


this was originally a dvd problem that we jumped ship on. Since the game disk can be read on another computer on the network Corey just needs some help in setting up the networking.

Two machines One win 7, the other vista. firewalls on both machines should be off.

What he wants to do is share the dvd on the vista machine so he can install the second game disk on the win 7 machine

Originally homegroup, may have been changed to workgroup

Original dvd player 2 years old so may not be reading correctly

Anyone want to jump in feel free
