Why can't I map a network share on my Windows 7 64-bit computer?
Posted on 2011-03-03
I have a folder (ClientFiles) on my windows xp 32-bit computer. Sharing has been enabled on this folder with permissions for everyone to "Read".
I tried to "map a network drive" on my new Dell Windows 7 64-bit computer to the "ClientFiles" folder on the xp computer. I get an error message: "Windows cannot access \\aapc\clientfiles".
No other person in the office gets the error. Of course, everyone else is running windows xp professional.
Additionally: On the Windows 7 computer, when I try to add a network printer (HP 3600 connected on the xp computer via usb and shared), I get an error that says "Windows couldn't connect to the printer). But I can submit this as another question.
Thanks for your help.
