Posted on 2011-04-26
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
 I tried to connect my windows 7 with a Windows Xp machine  I have serve file sharing in advance mode not simple I have my dir shared and when I´m trying to acces from my windows 7 machine looks the name of the machine XP but if I click on there tell me:

Error code 0x80070035
The network path was not found and on the event log:

The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer XPMACHINE that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{BB67E831-9154-476F-B900-ABB210076BE6}. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced.

I disabled Computer Browse service and nothing too I have no firewall.
Any suggestion?
Thank you

    Re-enable the browser service.

    Then try installing the Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) Responder on the XP Professional machine.

    Windows 7 uses the Public folder that's simplest method.
    Error code 0x80070035
    a couple of things you can try
     first disable DHCP on the router and assign static ip addresses to each network adapter within Windows.
    Then enable NetBios over TCP/IP on the xp system
    in windows 7
    Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings
    check them
    r/click the network icon on the taskbar go to network and shring center>
     On the right open Change adapter settings>Right-Click on the connection and choose Properties.
    >Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Version 4 in the list and ticked, highlight it
    Click on Properties, and then click Advanced.
    On the Advanced TCP/IP settings windows, go to WINS tab.
    Under NetBIOS setting, click Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP, and then click OK.
    Reboot both systems just incase.

    Oops... the LLTD fix posted previously is only for SP2.

    That fix was supposed to be included in SP3, but someone forgot it. It should be in SP4 if there ever is one (there have been over 100 critical updates since SP3, and that's not even including VB/VC++ runtimes, dotNET service packs + updates, WMP updates, IE6/7/8 updates, et cetera)... in the meantime you have to request the hotfix, and they'll email you a link and a password (I recommend running the exe right away and extract it using the password, then delete the passworded file).

    You can request the hotfix here -

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, you have to request the hotfix for SP3 and they'll email you a link and a password for KB922120 v6, because the installer for KB922120 v5 works only on XP SP2. There is not (yet) an SP4 for XP, but when you're filling out the request you might notice it says XP SP4 on the form.

    I installed the fix and the update and same issue, now exploring I notice that from XP side if I try to see the computers on network  XP can´t do don´t see and put the message : "you might not have permission to use this network resource xp. contact administrator...". ANd like on the first message if I use windows 7 to see computers of the network can see all including the fault XP, then from XP side appears don´t see nothing from Windows 7 at least you can see the name and the error of the first message.
       I have my configuration exactly like Merete: has on him post.
    Any other suggestion?
    Thank you

    At the bottom of Advanced Network Sharing, I have mine set to use Accounts and Passwords instead of homegroup (the Win7 machines still belong to the homegroup, but it allows the XP machines to connect using the accounts and passwords I created on the Win7 machines).

    Attached is what my network map looked like before and after installing the LLTD fix on the XP Pro desktops and laptops.
