Default Windows 7 Ultimate and Professional Networking Issues

Hey all, its been ages since i posted here

Anyways...i'm having some problems networking 3 pcs. This is the setup:

Desktop - Win7 Ulti 64bit
Laptop - Win7 Ulti 32bit
Desktop - Win7 Professional 32bit

So i can easilly access files from the laptop on the 64bit desktop and vice versa...they talk to each other no problems, how ever, both the laptop and pc cannot access any shared folders on the second desktop except for the "users" folder (which contains public and my user folder). Also, this pc cannot access the shares of the other 2 machines.

My question is why and how to resolve this...is there a connection issue between 7 ultiumate and pro?

Thanx all!

PS. They are all in the same workgroup, that being MSHOME. I tryed changing them to WORKGROUP to see if that fixes my problems but it didnt


Hey Guys, issue solved, had to add "everyone" in the security tab of the hard drive i wished to share.....i think there are issues between pro and ulti though...

But now its all good

Default Re: Windows 7 Ultimate and Professional Networking Issues

Yes I was going to suggest just that (adding everyone).

Glad you got it solved.
Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"
