Sharing not available
Posted on 1998-11-29
I have a W98 installation that is either weird or purposely forced. It is an installation of an OEM W98 over a regular installation of W95. I installed it by renaming win.com and installing W98 OVER W95, retaining the previous settings (fonts, add-ons, software, apps, etc.). There was no problem except when I connected to a LAN of W95 workstations, I get the message that "System policies do not allow adding the selected device" when I try to add Microsoft: File and Printer sharing for Microsoft Networks". I can connect properly to the LAN and view/use shared resources, but I can't share mine. I need to share my resources badly, but I don't want to reformat my HDD to re-install W98 on its own. Can anybody help me with this?
