the user name is
Jim Martini (no password for the user)
computer name is

the C drive is mapped for sharing as "\\Tablet\c"

on laptop B,
i typed \\Tablet\c

(both are win7 pro machines)

it asks for credentials

i type
tablet\[Jim Marini] with blank password
tablet\"Jim Marini" with blank password

how can i make this work.

when i do a
"ping tablet" it connects fine.

i tried by ip (instead of computer name) and it also fails.
