Question about Microsoft Windows 7 Professional for PC
I work for a printing company and we are having issues with computers connecting to 1 specific computer. I will list the computers on the network and what they do followed w/ additional details: 1) Windows Server 2003 - FTP Server 2) Windows 7 Pro (64) - customer file storage / printing station 3) Windows 7 Pro (64) - Pre-Press/Design 4) Windows 7 Home Premium (64) - Pre-Press/Design 5) Windows 7 Pro (64) - Marketing 6) Windows Vista Home Premium (64) - Customer Service 7) Windows 7 Pro (64) - Account Management 8) Windows XP Home (32) - Finance The problem we are having is computers 3-7 (and maybe 8) will get an error message "not enough storage space to process this command" or sometime "unable to connect" when trying to access shared folders on computer 2. The only computers we are worried about connecting to this shared drive are the ones operating Windows 7, so the issue shouldn't be related to OS compatibility. The computer the files are stored on is also used to print from (faster load times). I've followed some instructions for adding IRPStackSize to the reg but it only works for a limited time (and for all I know just restarting the computer fixed it and increasing the IRPStackSize didn't). Increasing the IRPStackSize also seemed to make the program the printer uses to react slower. This morning I made the decimal 45 and we haven't had the problem again yet, but I'm hoping there's a better solution.
Okay, first a bit of "techie" information. When you print you send a file to the "print spooler" on the system handling the printing. In your case, that is Workstation 2. That file can be quite large and if there are several sent at once it can take up a lot of room. Once the system finishes printing it then clears out that space on the hard drive. Second, because you also use that for a file storage it may be that a lot of files are stored on that system either permanently or temporarily. So....the answer is that you are probably temporarily running out of disk space.
The reason you IRPStackSize increase worked is that you set aside more space for that stack so the system could hand incoming data more easily ...which meant it could sometimes delay a disk write enough to avoid a printing error.
The solution is to either increase the hard drive capacity of the system or to move the printing or customer files to another system on the network.
Of course, I could be wrong about this....;>) but it's the first thing that occurred to me.

SOURCE: file sharing
it is possible
If you have multiple computers in your home and they are connected through a home network, you can share files among your computers. That means you no longer have to copy files to a floppy disk or USB flash drive to transfer them to another computer. Once you configure your computer to share files, you (or another user with the appropriate permissions) can, by using Windows Explorer, open them from other computers connected to the network, just like you’d open files that are stored on a single computer. You can also choose to have folders visible—but not modifiable—from other computers on the network.
To share files on your computer with other computers on a network, you need to:
• Share a folder on your computer. This will make all of the files in the folder available to all the computers on your network (you can’t share individual files).
• Set up user accounts on your computer for everyone who needs to connect to your shared folder. If any of the accounts are Limited User accounts (unless an account is a Computer Administrator account, it is a Limited User account), follow the steps in Set permissions for files and folders to enable them to open your files.
To access shared files that are on another computer on your network, you need to:
• Connect to the shared folder from other computers on the network. This procedure is described in Map a network drive.
Note: By default, file permissions only allow your user account and administrators on your local computer to open your files, regardless of whether a person is sitting at your keyboard or at another computer. It may help to keep these three things in mind when setting up file sharing:
• Files have user permission settings.
• Every computer has its own user database.
• Some accounts are administrator accounts and some aren’t.
Configure your computer to share files To share a folder on your computer so that files stored in the folder can be accessed from other computers on your home network
Log on to your computer as an administrator. For more information, see Access the administrator account from the Welcome screen.
Click Start, and then click My Documents.
Right-click the folder that you want to share, and then click Sharing and Security.
Tip: If you want to share your entire My Documents folder, open My Documents, and then click the Up button on the toolbar. You can then select the My Documents folder.
If you see a message that reads, As a security measure, Windows has disabled remote access to this computer, click the Network Setup Wizard link. Then follow the instructions in How to set up your computer for home networking. On the File and printer sharing page of the Network Setup Wizard, be sure to select Turn on file and printer sharing. If you do not see this message, skip this step and go to step 5.
Note: If you do not see the Network Setup Wizard link or the Share this folder on the network check box, your computer probably has Simple File Sharing disabled. This is a common change made to computers used for business. In fact, it happens automatically when a computer joins an Active Directory domain. You should follow these instructions to share a folder instead.
In the Properties dialog box, select the Share this folder on the network check box.
If you want to be able to edit your files from any computer on your network (instead of just being able to open them without saving any changes), select the Allow network users to change my files check box.
Windows Explorer will show a hand holding the folder icon, indicating that the folder is now shared.
To connect to the shared folder from another computer, follow the steps described in How to map a network drive.
Note: By default, only you and other people with an administrator account on the computer sharing the folder will be able to open your files. To limit access of specific users with an administrator account on the computer sharing the folder, read How to set permissions for files and folders.

Password Protect Folders in XP
To password protect a folder built into Windows XP (for other Windows flavors, there are some freeware/shareware programs out there).
If you have a log in password for your account, this can be used to protect folders from other users. If not, you need to creat one. Your hard drive must be formatted using NTFS (which it probably is unless you're dual booting with another operating system). Here's what to do...
Right-click the folder that you want to make private and choose "Properties" (or Alt+Double-click). Go to the "Sharing" tab and check the "Make this folder private" box.
Click Apply . If you do not have a password on your account, a box will pop up asking if you want to assign a password. This must be done if you want to make the folder private, so click Yes . You will need to use your password to log on to your computer from then on.
Type in a password then confirm it. Click the "Create Password" button then close the Password window.
Click OK in the Properties dialog box.
Now anyone else logged on to your computer can't access that file without knowing your password.

This could be an issue having to do with the installed drivers for your network adapter. XP and Vista use different drivers, even though the hardware is the same...Take a look through this tutorial and make sure all your network hardware has vista drivers installed. Also possibly helpful would be a read through of this vista help site...
I would start there, and if you need further assistance after making sure you have the correct drivers for vista, write back and we'll be happy to help you sort it out...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

You can right click on the program and select properties - this will let you run the program as if under different OSs...
Alternatively, you can install VirtualBox, install a 32bit OS on that like XP and install Turbo C onto that so it works....
finally you can upgrade your Turbo C to Microsoft's free Visual C Express available here - I would suggest this as your best option as it is more modern, better environment and gives you several more years of use than you have with Turbo C
If this helped you, then please help me and vote - thank you
