Windows 7 Can See But Not Access Files On XP SP3 And Vista Premium

Aug 6, 2011

System Info Utility version
HP s3240uk Pavilion Slimline
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional , Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+, AMD64 Family 15 Model


I have found many well meaning suggestions to resolve this annoying aspect of networking between Windows 7, Vista and XP but it seems like we are all banging our heads against a brick wall. I have tried every suggestion I can find on other forums but still my Windows 7 computer cannot access my XP Home or Vista machines. The message I see each time I try is as follows:- "\WINXP (or \VISTA) is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have permissions. The account is not authorised to log in from this station." You will of course appreciate that the 'administrator' is myself. I can access files and a printer on Windows 7 from the other two computers providing I place shared files in the public folder ... no problem with this.

I have checked that all three computers have the same Workgroup Name. Yes, I have got Network Discovery turned on. Yes, I have turned on file and printer sharing. Yes, I have turned off Password protected sharing (and tried it turned on). Yes, I have set my network location to Work network. Yes, the computers I am trying to access do show in my network window ... each and everyone of them can be pinged from each other. I even have a little utility called Wireless Network Watcher that shows that the IP addresses, MAC addresses and each computer by name can be seen on the network.

Unable To Share The Files On Desktop With Netbook?

Mar 21, 2011

I have a small home network set up: desktop, wireless router, printer, netbook, two set-top boxes, visiting(!) laptops. Until recently, it worked fine, then two things happened.

1 - everything on the Internet went VERY slow and call to my ISP resulted in a new router.

2 - I also subscribed to McAfee Home Protect through my ISP rather than ther free AVG.

Since then, I have been unable to share the files on my desktop with my netbook; it can not see them on My Network Places.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 Unable To Share Files

Aug 23, 2011

I have a desktop (winXP) and a laptop (Win Vista) connected to a E1000 router.  When they are both connected to the E1000 via cat 5 cable I can share files and directorys with no problems.  When I connect the laptop via WiFi I am unable to share files.  In fact I cannot ping the laptop from the desktop or the desktop from the laptop.  It is like the AP Isolation is on but I have checked that setting and it is off.

Dell :: No Icon On Inspiron 1525 Running Vista Premium 32bit

Aug 25, 2012

I have followed instructions and installed R140135.., also R159805

I have not received any error messages. Fn+F2 did not work, so I tried to activate BTTray within both of the driver programs. Nothing has happened. My Bluetooth devices (via Control panel) is empty. Bluetooth settings displays nothing.

I am trying to transfer photos from my Nokia phone. The phone cannot find the laptop.If I slide the button next to the CD drawer I get visibility of Wireless, or accidently turn it off (!).Under Dell drivers I can see WIDCOMM, R14035 & R159805.If I type BTTray.exe, it takes me there but double clicking it does nothing. Ditto if I run R159805twon.

ICS On Windows 7 Home Premium Toshiba Netbook?

Feb 15, 2011

I was wondering if internet connection sharing was made impossible by Microsoft on netbooks even after an Anytime Upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium. This is because whenever I create an Ad-Hoc network on my netbook I am unable to turn on Internet Connection Sharing. Though my friend with a Toshiba notebook running Home Premium is able to turn on Internet Connection Sharing.

Accessing Server Shares With Windows 7 Home Premium

Jul 30, 2012

I recently bought a personal laptop that I'd like to use at work. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium installed and because of that, I can't join it to the Windows Server 2003 domain we have. I don't really need to print or any of the other things that go with being on the domain, I just need access to a few key folders. Is there any way to access shares on the server with Win 7 Home?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit Loses Homegroup?

Jan 28, 2011

It works then it stops seeing the homegroup machines. After struggling with this I have determined some things.

When it stops seeing any homegroup machines, xp, vista 64 and two dlink 323 nas boxes, I can get it working again by restoring the drive with a backup for a time when it did work.

I ran a lan software that showed me mac address, ip address, master brower and workgroup of every machine on the network. I ran the software when the Windows 7 home premium machine didn't see the workgroup. The software showed the windows home premium 64bit machine was not reporting the homegroup name. Looks to me like something is changing causing the win 7 home not to report the workgroup name. I tried changing the workgroup name, rebooting, changing it back then rebooting and it didnt' fix it.

When the machine is not seeing the workgroup I can ping the other machines but I can't map them using their IP addresses. When it lost the workgroup lately I noticed the first sign this time was I could see the machines and directories but could not access them being told I didn't have permissions/access basically. Can't remember the exact wording.

I am at a loss of what to do to fix this and I would perfer a fix verses reinstalling everything from scratch which may or may not perminately fix the problem.

Fresh Install Of Windows 7 Home Premium / Won't Connect To Wifi

Feb 29, 2012

I have a compaq presario v2000 that i just installed windows 7 hope premium on (did a full hdd wipe, and reinstall windows)Windows 7 wireless connection manager can see all available wifi connections, but will not connect to any of them.Ive tried this on WPA2 networks, unsecured networks at several places (my office, wendy's, mcdonald's, my home, etc) i dont think it's the internal wifi card, as I could connect to those networks ok before the wipe/reload.I'm thinking it's a driver issue, but it's using the WHCL driver dated 2009 that is included in Windows 7, and I've not been able to find a more up-to-date one.device manager shows Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN, but not exact model number.Compaq support site has drivers for XP & Vista only, and the Vista driver page doesn't include wifi card drivers.

Wireless :: Sharing Files Between Vista And 7

Aug 7, 2011

0ave a WRT110 that provides the hub between an xp, vista and a windows 7 machine but I can't seem to find a way to share files between them.Mapping a network drive, making sure all permissions are set on all machines Es there something like a service that isn't started that isn't started? and is it not started on all systems. I'm going nuts trying to prepare for the up coming school season so that all my kids can get what they need from their individual bedrooms (no cheating that way).

Sharing Between Windows 7 And Vista Can't See New Files

Jan 16, 2011

I have my Windows 7 computer and my daughters computer with Windows Vista networked over a wired home LAN. For the most part, everything seems to work fine. I can access files on her computer, and she can access files from mine (photos, music, video, etc.). I set up a shortcut icons on her desktop for easy access to specific folders I am sharing on my computer. Unfortunately, when I share a folder on my computer, she is unable to view any files added after I initially shared it. So I routinely have to go in and share the folder again. It's not a huge issue, but it is annoying. The limitation seems to be one way, as I can access newly added files on her computer, without resharing.

How To Share Files Between Computers With Different OS

May 2, 2013

I know this is sort of a stupid question, but I just spent over an hour with a Microsoft Tech Support guy who had absolutely no clue what he was doing. He frequently paused for five minute intervals to "confer with his resources" (I suspect he was reading an outline that told him what to do), and every time I explained that an issue did not work precisely as he expected, he had to put me on hold and talk to someone else. It was hellishly aggravating

Cannot Share Files Between Windows 7 And XP

May 18, 2012

I have 3 computers in my home network: the main computer, a laptop, and an old computer used for streaming vids and pix to the TV. I recently upgrading the main computer from XP to Win7, as well as upgraded the TV computer from Win98 to XP. The laptop and main computer are fine. The problem arises when I try to access files from either the laptop or main computer from the TV computer.I've also read something about that the user name and password has to be the same on all the computers on the network, but that doesn't really make sense. The laptop and main computer don't have the same user name and they work fine. Besides, before I disabled password file sharing, I entered the proper name and password for the main computer and it still wouldn't let me connect.

I'm running a desktop pc with Windows XP Professional SP3 32-bit, connected to the network via ethernet, and a laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit connected to the network via ethernet and wireless. The homegroup name is the same on both machines.

Can't Share Files Or Printer

Jan 3, 2013

We've got two computers in the Homegroup on our network -- call them computers A and B. Computer A (info below) is running Windows 7 Professional, Computer B is running Windows 7 Home Premium. Computer A has an ethernet cable to the router, Computer B is connecting via WiFi.

The problem is: Computer A can access files and the printer on Computer B, but Computer B cannot access Computer A. When I'm on B and attempt to add A's printer, I get a message that:

"file and print sharing device A is online but isn't responding to connection attempts"

In the HomeGroup window on A, all sharing options (pictures, documents, music, printers, videos) are checked.
