Sharing

    In my local network, The Windows XP machine is sharing a folder.
    The Windows 7 machine sees the folder but cannot open it.
    Error, "You do not have permissions..."

    I've read some stuff about Homegroup, but that seems to apply only to Win 7
    machines.

    Create a user account on the XP machine that has the same
    username/password as the account on the Win7 box.

    By User Account, I assume you do not mean "workgroup" name?
    Both machines are in the same workgroup, and the XP machine shares 2
    printers
    that the Win7 machine can print to.

    As for User Account, I am the only user and I am "Earl" on both machines...
    no password
    required.

    More Info... On that XP machine I have a folder on my C: drive shared,
    which I can access
    from Win7 machine. The folder that I can not access is on the desktop of
    the XP machine.

    AFAIK there are problems with sharing when no password is used. There
    is probably a registry fix but the easy way is to change your users to
    have passwords.

    Works fine here... not a single account has a password on any of 4 PCs in my
    Workgroup.

    Unless things have changed since XP, you can't access a Desktop folder
    from another machine because the Desktop is located inside a user
    account and is therefore private. That probably doesn't make much
    sense the way I wrote it, but if you move the folder out of the
    profile, for example to the root of C:/, then it should be visible.

    I moved the folder from the desktop to C: Root. Still can not access, even
    though it
    does show on the Win7 Network list.
    I also created a NEW folder on the XP C: Root and it can not be accessed. I
    checked the
    Share settings of the folder that can be accessed with the one that can not
    be accessed
    and they are the same.

    By "user account" he indeed means "user account"...

    I have had a similar experience to Stephen Wolstenholme in this thread,
    and have solved it by making sure that on each machine there is an
    account with the same name and with the same non-null password.

    However, relic replied to Stephen Wolstenholme's post with a different
    experience, just to make things confusing.

    You're thinking of the problems related to scheduled tasks and accounts
    with blank passwords.

    I don't know if Stephen Wolstenholme is, but I assure you, I am not.
