Hope someone can help me. I have a home netowrk set up and all the
harddrives are shared so that they an be accessed from the other systems.
All the systems are able to see and access my XP systems howver my Vista
systems can be seen by the othe rmachines but get access denied message
trying to open the drive or map the the drive.
From an XP system trying to get to a Vista system, I get:
the message acces denied.
From a Vista system I get access denied trying to map the drive, clicking
dtails reports error 0x80070005 access denied and clicking diagnose reports
the share is ccessible but the username I am logged in with was denied
The shares on Vista had the passwords turned off.
Hope some one can help me resolve this.
