December 5, 2009 Laura Thank you! If so, how do I do that? Then select Specific People (here i have elected the test1 folder under D:\ to be my shared folder). However, if both machines have a user named "Fred" and both machines have the exact same password for user Fred, then as far as the 8.1 PC is concerned, it's user

If you can point me to a GOOD tutorial on how to do this, one that describes the screens and options I actually have, that would be good enough. Read other forums for an hour.

Obviously, Microsoft technicians could have resolved this issue-or at least posted a few more instructions. the win 7 machine cannot access the xp pro files , though xp machine can see files of win 7 machine.. The troubleshooter has no idea what the problem is. It's turning Network Discovery ON.

Additionally, there is some evidence that suggests that one must turn the Guest account and UPNP both ON, which is the exact opposite of what is recommended to secure XP/2000 machines.By website here I am going to track this thread. Some searching revealed this fix: http://forums.techarena.in/vista-help/972126.htm, which I followed carefully.

Imaging away / flick November 25, 2009 Lea I am having the same problem as some of you…can't get Windows XP printer driver to install on Windows 7, thus XP computer check my blog This post has been flagged and will be reviewed by our staff. Spent most of today fiddling around with all kinds of stuff including the Computer Browser Service that wouldn't start on xp - which I eventually fixed but with no joy re One of the bosses is tired of me saying he can't be connected until he sends his new Dell back- period- or lets me nuke and pave it back to XP.

  • It's just Windows settings either way, and natively supported in XP and (I think) Win 2000.

Thanks! kevin k says: 7 years ago I tried WiPeer on several XP machines, but the wireless options are all disabled (grayed out) in Network Configuration. I wanted to connect to a fairly new printer connected to a win2k machine and it can not find the drivers, I go to the manufacturer's site and they don't have

I did think about setting up a homegroup, but it does not really solve my problem :-) –HaukurHaf Sep 5 '10 at 0:50 add a comment| Your Answer draft saved This should work in both directions. or read our Welcome Guide to learn how to use this site. have a peek at these guys Thanks again.

thanks again. I can access the internet through my wireless connection to a Speedtouch router which is hardwired to the older machines. I have set up the sharing on the Windows 7 machine with full access for everyone and even disabled the Windows 7 firewall. I'm guessing the latter; if so, how do I give blanket permission for each of the drives on the 8.1 machine to be seen AND edited from the XP machine?

My XP machine is not showing up in this list at all.

November 29, 2009 Mark I totally removed my firewall and now I can get to the computer and can drill down but when I get to the Adminstrator files it says I made sure that the windows 7 drivers where installed on the laptop and did as you instructed and it worked perfectly. However, when I double click the laptop icon on the Windows 7 machine I get the following error message: "Windows cannot access \\laptop.

How did the destruction of the Ring cause Arwen to change from Evenstar to Morningstar? Read More Home About Contact Privacy Policy For those who may have a problem (as I did) with completing the printer setup (basically windows 7 refused to recognise the driver for the xp machine) the following two links To view the credentials, go to: Control Panel → Credential Manager Poke around and find the credentials you're looking for.

XP can see Win 7 (mostly), but Win 7 acts like it is completely alone according to the Network page. All went fine until this step. It would have been nice if everything were backward compatible in a way that allowed Vista and XP to SIMPLY join on to the Homegroup. No DVD burner on my old laptop and too tedious via CD's.

I have a W7 64-bit with Dell Photo AIO 944 printer connected (running in compatiility mode) and a WinXP 32-bit. How can I do this? (I only want to be able to transfer files between my two machines and no others) Thanks!
