Persistent Network path not found problem.
Posted on 2009-05-07
I have 3 computers in my home network.
A Desktop, ASUS, running XP Home/SP3 which has 3 drives holding all the data I wish to share.
A Laptop, DELL, dual-booted with XP Pro/SP3 and Windows 7 RC 7100.
A Laptop, ACER, dual-booted with XP Pro/SP3 and Windows 7 RC 7100.
They all belong to Workgroup, HOMENET7.
The 2 Windows 7 systems are connected by Homegroup as well.
All the systems happily share data EXCEPT I cannot access the XP systems on the ASUS and ACER from the W7 system on the DELL..
the machines show in Computer->Network but double-clicking them gives Network path not found 0x80070055.
I tried everything I can think of, including re-installing Windows 7 on the DELL but it still doesnt work.
Please help whilst I have a little hair left ;-)
