Windows 7: windows 7 networking with Vista (need assistance)

29 Oct 2009   #1

windows 7 networking with Vista (need assistance)

Windows 7 desktop (computer A) *Home Premium
Vista desktop (computer B)

Need step by step outlined / understanding how to get windows 7 to not only see but connect to Vista desktop.

note1: both computers are on same workgroup (MSHOME).
note2: attempted from either station to connect A -> B or B -> A and was
unsuccessful each time (access denied).

There appears to be some permission issues preventing this from working. I need to understand how to be at root (top) level to allow for steps you outine to work.

**Please don't spare any details in describing how this can work.

Thanks in advance!

I am always on the go, doing same work on 2 different machines. If I could figure out how to sync the two computers so that the files I am always emailing back and forth to myself to keep both machines current, then I would probably sync instead. So, for the life of me, I cannot get my Vista...
