HOW TO SHARE FILES AND PRINTERS BETWEN WINDOWS 7 AND VISTA With three different...


HOW TO SHARE FILES AND PRINTERS BETWEN WINDOWS 7 AND VISTA

With three different versions of Windows being used now, you’ll probably find yourself trying to share files or printers between them. Today we take a look at how to share files and printers between Vista and Windows 7 machines.
In this example we are on a basic home network using Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit version) and Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 (32-bit version).
Set Windows 7 Share Settings
On the Windows 7 machine we need to set up a few things in Advanced Sharing Settings. First type network and sharing center into the search box in the Start Menu and hit Enter.
1net.png
Then click on Change advanced sharing settings…
3net.png
Now in Advanced Sharing Settings, make sure to turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, and public folder sharing. Make sure these are enabled in both the Home or work and Public profiles.
4net.png
Depending on your setup, you might want to turn off password protected sharing. Other wise you’ll need to enter the password for each machine in, which isn’t that big of a deal. Turning it off while you’re setting it up makes things a bit easier though by saving a step.
5net.png
Set Vista Share Settings
On the Vista machine we need to double check and make sure it’s sharing settings are ready to go. Right-click on Network and choose Properties.
2vista.png
The Network and Sharing Center opens up. Under Sharing and Discovery we need to turn on File Sharing, Public Folder Sharing, and Network Discovery.
7vista.png
Also on the Vista machine you might want to turn off password protected sharing … but it’s completely up to you.
5vista.png
Share Files Windows 7 View
Now that we have the correct Settings On each machine, it’s time to put it to the test. Open up Network on the Windows 7 machine, and you should see all of the machines on the network. The Vista machine in this example is VISTAGEEK-PC.
2net.png
There was no need to enter a password to access the Vista machine because password protection is turned off. But now you can go through and see the User Shared folders. In this example both public and Users directories are shared.
6net.png
Share Files Vista View
Now on the Vista computer, double click on Network and you should see the Windows 7 machine (where in this instance it’s MYSTICGEEK-PC).
89vista.png
I enabled password protection on the Windows 7 machine so we can take a look at the login screen that will be displayed before connecting.
6vista.png
Then you’ll see the folders and devices that are shared. Here you can see the HP printer connected to the Windows 7 machine is available.
90vista.png
And you can continue browsing through all available shared folders and files.
88vista.png
Printer Sharing
As we showed above, you can see the printer connected to Windows 7. Let’s make sure we can connect to it and print a test document. In Vista click on the Start menu and type printers into the search box and hit Enter.
95print.png
Right-click on the shared printer and select Properties.
96print.png
Under the General tab click on the Print Test Page button.
97print.png
The following message is displayed while the test page prints out on the printer connected to your Windows 7 machine.
98print.png
Another test you might want to perform is opening a test document and making sure you can print that to the Windows 7 printer.
100default.png
Provided everything prints out successfully you might want to make it the default printer.
99default.png
Troubleshooting
If your machines aren’t able to see each other or the printer isn’t working…here are a few steps you might want to use to determine where the problem is.
Double check to make sure Network Discovery and File and Print Sharing is enabled on both machines as shown above.
4vista.png
In this example both machines are connected to a Belkin home wireless router and IP addresses are dynamically assigned. If you are using Static addresses make sure you can ping the IP address of each computer. If not, double check the assigned IP Address and cabling of each computer…
8ping.png
If the printer isn’t working, double check to make sure you have the latest drivers for each OS installed.

Network Windows 7 with Xp and Vista


Windows 7 includes a new way to share data between all computers in the house with the Residential Group. But only when computers running Windows 7 may join the Group residential and enjoy the new features of sharing, playing multimedia files remotely, etc.. If you have computers running Windows XP or Windows Vista networking with Windows 7, you can still share your files and printers in Windows 7 "old" by following the instructions in this case practice. Below are the steps to do the same.
Check the workgroup:

To be a network, your computers with XP, Vista and Windows 7 should be part of the same workgroup.
Click the Start button. Right-click Computer (My Computer in XP) and click Properties. 

In the Settings area of the computer name, verify the name of the working group. The default name is WORKGROUP but you can customize it by clicking the Change Settings button. 

Make sure it is the same on other machines on the network. Under XP, the information is in the Computer Name tab.

Enable Sharing:

To enable sharing in Windows 7, you must change the settings of the Network and Sharing Center.
Click Start, then Control Panel. 

Click Network and Internet and then click Network and Sharing Center. 

In the left column, click Change sharing settings advanced. 

Verify that the options Enable network discovery, Enable file sharing and printer sharing and Enable so that anyone with network access can read and write are checked. 

Click Save Changes.

Is there any driver, program or software fix that will allow me to load my "Intel Create & Share Software on my Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 530?


The Intel Create & Share was written for Windows 2K and XP and not updated. The workaround is to use a computer (second machine, dual boot or virtual) with XP installed.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or update to one of those versions, you may be able to run a virtual XP computer for free. Download from Microsoft and install in order the Virtual PC program and the XP mode software. Install the Intel Create & Share program in XP mode as if it is your only OS. (Note: you can't have hardware installed on the virtual and real computer at the same time. To share files you will need to save them to external media (USB or optical disc).)

Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels. For the other options, you will need a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

Use of HPJ4680 in a network with Mac & PC connected to router


Ok what you do is, install the printer as a LOCAL one on one of the PC's, Probably the XP, one, would be best. or perhaps the PC; actually "Connected" to the D-link router & Modem, then Now install this printer , as a LOCAL, printer, and set as DEFAULT, enable Printer Sharing. Now, ALL PC's MUST, have a Name, Belong to the same Workgroup, have a Password. On the "Other" PC's Install the Printer as a Network Printer, browse for it and connect. Print a test page from each. Remember the PC with the printer attached, must obviously be ON or the "Others" cannot connect and print.. Make sure all network permissions are set sharing is set, especially on the Win 7. Just make sure they can all "See" each other first, before try all this.. the network MUST be intact and communicatable from each PC to at least the PC with the printer attached. I have included 3 links below, to help

Instal only one printer driver on the PC it is physically connected to. Preferably the Windows 7 PC (Latest OS). Unshare the printer, remove drivers from other PC's., then reboot al PC,s and re-share the printer. The PC's sharing should allow the Windows 7 PC to use it's driver, although they may request a disc for basic information about the printer.

Will virtual pc for mac v7 work with powerbook g4 running 10.4.11


Sorry, but the G4 and G5 desktops have chipsets released prior to the Intel agreement allowing pc's with CoreDuo and Macs with DualCore chips to exchange data, even though Virtual PC for G3 through G5 chipsets did work in running MS OS's prior to Vista, including XP, on mac platforms.

Now, if this helps, you might be able to secure an older version of Virtual PC, since your version works on current Macs and PCs with Vista, to run XP on your G4 and G5.
