    I have shared the drives on the vista desktop and laptop I still get and error the I need adminstrative right to open the folder except for public folders.

    I will have to check on that I remember seeing that I think I did give permission but again I may not have. Thanks I will check and see. I know the network is working since I can get into the public folders and when I try the error message says that the folder is avaiable but I don't have permission and I'm the one trying to run this silly network.

    I made the original post about trying to share folders other than public. What I was doing is right click on the folder then click on share which is in the list which I would assume most folks wanting to share would do. Well I found out that you are exactly right Kauryl. First you have to right click on the folder then select proprieties on that folder then select share or advance sharing to share. I guess when you right click on a folder and see that list which has share among them that share is just useless at least it doesn't do what I wanted. The right way is to right click on the folder then click on proprieties then select advance share or share then the folder is shared as Kauryl said above. I found this out after trying and clicking on anything and everything to get sharing to work then on day I clicked on proprieties and walla I saw advance sharing and sharing I had it.

You would have to share that main disk and set all access permissions on, this is comprimising to security though. Here is one way of doing it:

If you want to share folders simply right-click the folder, and choose the Properties option.

Now choose the Advanced Sharing button.

Now you should be able to check the box "Share this folder", and choose a share name, which is easy for you to remember. Now you can see it and access it from anywhere in your network.

I installed XP on a Vista installed PC on a dual boot but when booting in XP I am unable to access the Internet..I need to know if I need to install any drivers


you are going to need to log into the vista side and download the xp drivers for your network card. save it in a place accessible by xp. not anywhere in a user folder...save to c:\network driver even though you are not logged into vista the user permissions will prevent you from accessing anything inside a user or system folder.

I downloaded the os from vista to xp my sound card doesn't work proper why? but it works with vista very well


The Vista audio driver is not compatible with XP, you need to download the XP audio driver.
Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP device drivers for your model computer, Use this link :- http://www.ibm.com/products/finder/us/finders?pg=ddfinder&cm_re=other-_-suprcn-_-download
You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder.

in the router's lan (not wan) configuration - set the dhcp server (gateway address) to be 10.1.10.1. Then set the addresses of the clients (connected to the router) to be assigned addresses from 10.1.10.10 - 10.1.10.20. Set the desktop's TCP/IP address to be 10.1.10.11 (static) with a subnet of 255.255.255.0, and a gateway address of 10.1.10.1. Set the laptop's wireless connection (TCP/IP adapter) to have a static 10.1.10.12 address with same subnet mask and gateway address of desktop. Change the workgroup on both computers to be of the same name (case sensitive here) to a name such as HOMENETWORK. Then on each computer, open up "My Computer" and right click on folders, files or printers that you want to share on your network!

Computer sharing


Hi,

Initially, I would suggest that you:
1. Make both members of the same workgroup;
2. verify that the Subnet Mask are identical to both PCs in their networking configuration; and
3. verify that the Folder or files are shared by viewing the folder or files properties making making sure that there is a check mark on "Share this folder on the network and/or "Allow network users to change my files".

Should the above be not corrective of your concern, pls post back.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Transfering mail setup from Windows xp to a windos vista machine with EasySuite


I'm not 100% sure about vista because I hate it but I can help you copy all of your outlook express data to a CD\DVD disk & your address book. Your network settings for express account is a phone call to your ISP.
If vista's explorer is set up like XP you should be able to copy your data into outlook express.
Open all these folders on you XP system.
User name\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Copy the Outlook Express folder to your CD.
User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book. Copy Address Book folder.
Making sure you have everything.
Open, User name\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Compair the two Outlook Express folder files. CD will not allow copy of same named folder.
If Vista's lay out is the same as XP than copy Outlook Express folder to Vista.
Suggest you have your current ISP setting /account setup before copying to Vista

Let me know if this works for you!
Good Luck & Kind Regards.
