When I had my pc running Win7 and my father still does have Win7 running on his laptop, we had a network setup and he was able to watch all the media I had downloaded on my computer at any time.
I reformatted, had to put on Windows Vista first, do all the upgrades and then upgrade to Win7. My C drive is an SSD and I think there is like, something small enough with it to mess up my OS cause it won't take every upgrade and it won't upgrade to Win7. Vista works fine and I'm stuck with just that now til I get an new SSD.
Anyway I'm running Vista, he's with Win7. I'm hardwired to the router and he is on it wirelessly. I did everything the same way I did before to set us up and he sees my folders on his laptop but can't access them.
Network Sharing Center comes up and I select "Show all shared network folders on this comptuer" and all the right folders come up I want him to have access to.
Then I select "Show all the files and folders I am sharing on this computer" and nothing comes up. What could cause that difference??
