If there is not a share named "IPC$" in the share list, use  "net share ipc$" command to create it.

Check that the other shares exist as well. Example:

Share name   Resource                        Remark

----------------------------------------------------------
C$               C:\                         Default share
ADMIN$       C:\WINNT                Remote Admin
IPC$                                          Remote IPC
