Re: Sharing, Vista & XP Pro
I should mention that as a test I gave one of the resources permissions for
the "Everyone" group. This allowed me, from the Vista machine, to now
actually click on the resource and see what folders were beneath the main
drive. This was not possible before. However, it still does not give me
access. Now, when I click on one of those drives it shows beneath the root
of the shared resource, it gives me this new error message:
xxx\xxx\xxx\xxx\xxx.xxx (the path to the file I tried clicking upon)
"The above file name is invalid. Please choose another file name or mapped
network drive location for the file."
Clearly the drive name, mapped drive, nor the location are invalid. What
could possibly be wrong here?
