Does anyone from Microsoft monitor these forums??? I have a Homegroup set up and can see laptop 1 from laptop 2, but I can't see laptop 2 from laptop 1. No other business could do this to customers. This could be called, Windows 10 Pro for Home users. HomeGroup Password Make sure that the HomeGroup password has not changed. I am at my wits end. I simply deleted the idstore. Please tell me what I am doing wrong.
Attempts to have the Win 10 devices join the homegroup result in an error message that no homegroup is available. Go to HomeGroup, which is a distinct and separate Control Panel subgroup. In order for Homegroup machines to show up they have to be sharing some folders from the Homegroup. You will then get the option of entering the password from your Win 7 homegroup. Scroll down the list and locate the following services.
On my netbook its does not display the name of my desktop pc under the homegroup. Then click on View or print the HomeGroup password. The set network location window appear, select Home network. Any ideas of something I might have missed? If you try this path, when you enter your homegroup password, it will search for a while and then tell you that the homegroup does not exist. I had the same issue that the original poster has. My initial attempts to setup a homegroup failed some time ago, I don't remember why, so I gave network folder sharing permissions for the time being. It should be on by default, but if someone changed your settings, this could also cause the problem.
You mean the password for your Microsoft account for the store? Of course it doesn't work and it takes a few minutes and eventually shows an error and says this homegroup doesn't exist and let me create a new one. Under the Private profile only, make sure to select Turn on file and printer sharing. I can see the advantage of limiting access in a place of business, but not on a computer that is only being used at home. Who set up the homegroup? So far, nothing has worked and I have run out of ideas. Can you explain it please? Firewalls Make sure any third-party firewalls are disabled like Comodo, etc.
Make sure the value is set to 0. I too still have still not been successful. I can't imagine how users who don't have tech mind skills are handling it. Remember that the machine you are viewing from won't show up on that list, just the other Homegroup machines in the network show up there. I did a search here after, and have found similar problems, but solutions were all ones I've tried already, and frankly, after about 6 months of wrestling on and off with.
I tried to fix them but gave up and went back to 10240. If I get it to work can I create specific folders to share in the homegroup or specify the public folders? But all it did was break it. I did find one other guy on Windows10forums. I suspect if I can do that that I will be able to successfully leave the group. It seems the computer I'm trying to add to the HomeGroup fails to detect the existing HomeGroup. I setup sharing in the homegroup between them.
I checked the password carefully for errors, but subsequent tries still resulted in the same error message. Where do you do these things specifically, i. This never happened with Windows 7 or Windows 8. Click on start and type in sharing. That one apparently has networking fixes.
I plugged the new computer into the back of the router with a wired connection and found that I could access the internet without any problem. Do report back if you get that far. Only computers on the same subnet will be able to connect to the HomeGroup, so if you have a wireless router, it would only be the computers connected to that router. Internet is connected and working on all four devices. I tried starting Peer Name Resolution Protocol, but received an error message saying it would not start along with an error code. I know the machine I tried it on was an insider build of 10586 and that machine has been like it since build 10166.
Hey, I have been having a great time with Win 7 so far but I have run into a little problem. There are a ton of users experiencing problems, so Threshold 2 definitely has serious networking bugs. But curious to know: when I attempt to change my password, won't I need to know my current one? I am used to these weird issues now with Windows 7 in general, but this is totally unacceptable. This just happened to me, and I was tearing my hair out - until I found that windows wasn't updating either. Favorites, desktop, contacts, my pictures, etc.
Everything is displaying perfectly now! It appeared to be a group of 10 randomly selected letters and numbers. Not much info to go on? Now my laptop couldn't access the other computers, so I got a brainstorm and decided to Leave the Homegroup on the laptop and then join it again. This I understand, but the time issue boggles the mind. I have currently 3 computers setup on Homegroup 2 desktops and a laptop. A new sales pitch; Windows 7.
