I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have a win7 Pro server and 2 win7 Pro laptops and and from the laptops can reach all the the shared folders on our server except the server itself (C:). The C: is shared with permissions are set on server, and the workgroup has the same name.

A:Cannot access shared C: with permissions on server

If you really need to access the entire drive I would investigate the built-in admin shares with the $ after the drive, as in C$ D$ etc..

In XP and earlier I had no trouble sharing drives. In Vista and later it was a hassle. I had a docking station I used with internal HDs. Sharing the whole drive was such a pita that I made a folder at the root of the drive, moved the entire folder structure into it, then shared that folder. Things were much easier. Of course the system partition cannot be treated the same way. See what you can find on built in admin shares with the dollar symbol after the name.

Greetings all,

I've browsed the forums a bit this evening trying to solve an issue that just showed up. Didn't find an exact fit in any other post, so I started a new one...

Computers involved:
W2K3 Standard SP2
W8.1 pro laptop

When working on the laptop this evening, i was trying to access "server" (my w2k3 computer) from the W8.1 laptop. I can ping the server IP successfully from the laptop, I can access "server" via Remote Desktop from the laptop, but I can't access it through the file browser at all. It doesn't show up in the display, nor can I simply type in the address. I've tried \\server\ and \\192.168.1.xx and neither one work. I get an error that says: "Windows cannot access \\server". Diagnostic was of no help, it couldn't find a solution at all. However, I can see the laptop from the server and access folders on it, no problem. So, it is a one-way issue: laptop --> server.

I've already checked "go to Programs and features > turn windows features on or off > enable "SMB 1.0 /CIFS File sharing". It is enabled.
I've already tried:

HiHave a server linked to four computers and a laptop for a business and can't seem to access shared files on server from other computers as it keeps asking for username and password to access it. Have tried to change from workgroup to domain that the server is on so to create username and password but error message keeps coming up 'a domain controller for the domain ata.local could not be contacted or if just use ata as domain it does not accept any username or password. Also have tried suggestions in other forums such as simple sharing and creating an account on other pc's with same username and password as server. All of the systems are windows xp and the server is windows standard fe. Would really appreciate any helpThanksHarry

A:can't access shared files on server from network computers

Hello bighaz,

Are you running a Domain Controller(DC) for your domain? If not, go to 1, if you are go to 2.

If you are not running a domain controller then the user credentials will not be present on every machine thus the error. If all users access the same files then you could create a single generic account on the file server and the users will need to use these credentials to access it. If the users need restricted access to certain files and folders you would need to create multiple accounts on the file server.
Once done ensure that all machines are in the same 'workgroup' default name is WORKGROUP and you should then be able to have access.

If you are running a DC you will need to ensure that all machines are members of the domain and that they know of the IP address of the DC(this will either be set by DHCP if you are running a DHCP server or if all machines have static IP's this will need to be set on each machine. You will then need to add the user accounts to the ACL for the file share they require access to. Remember you may need to add the user to both the share permissions and NTFS permissions.

If the above is still not working can you please confirm that you can ping the file server and also see if you can access file shares on any of the other PC's.

We've recently installed Windows Server 2003 at our small office for data storage, and have set up shared folders in the Win Server 2K3 for access from about a dozen Win XP Pro machines.

Upon the first access of these shared folders from a Win XP Pro machine, we're required to enter a User Name & Password for the Win Server 2K3 machine:

I understand that passwords are required and I have no issue with that... but as you can see from the image there's no means of SAVING the username & password that I can find.

Is there a work-around for this? Perhaps some method in WinXP Pro to save the username/password? As it stands now, any time one of the WinXP Pro machines gets rebooted, or if the server gets rebooted, users of the Win XP Pro machines have to re-enter the username/password, and I'd like to find if there's away around having to re-enter that info.

Thanks guys!

We are moving an old Access project from XP too Windows 7 32 and .Net.

However there is something wrong with Windows 7! When I try and create an ODBC link via ODBC Administrator to allow the software to access data tables on SQL Server on the Windows 2003 Server it just keeps producing a message saying the TCP/IP port does not exist or access is denied.

Having tried the same experiment with an XP computer it worked fine, no issues, but Windows 7 strangely doesn't???

The SQL Server is on standard port 1433, I tried turning the firewall off in Windows 7 but that made no difference, when installing Windows 7 and connecting it too the network it complained it needed a DNS address so I put one on the server and set that in the Windows 7 client.

The XP client never needed one, could that be linked to this odd issue?

My first experience of Windows 7 this is and it seems like Microsoft have struck again by taking something that works and making it unnecessarily difficult...

Of course I could be wrong

any ideas? Thanks

I have a print server running 2003 standard sp2, I have been looking for a way to allow helpdesk staff install and manage printers without logging into the server and without adding them to the admin group.

So I added them to the power users group and the print operators group, that worked fine they were able to UNC ( \\servername ) to the server and install printers, drivers, as well as uninstall drivers? printers ect????.
Now the problem??? this works great from an XP box, but when we try it from a windows 7 machine we get access denied. More specifically it acts like it is going to install the printer then when it comes to the driver installation part it fails ?Printer driver was not installed. Access is denied.?

No changes have been made to the permissions I can log into an XP machine with my profile and it works fine log out go to a Windows 7 machine use the same credentials and I get the above message access is denied. I am an admin of both machines on the windows 7 machine I have UAC turned off completely. Running XP Pro SP3 & Windows 7 pro both are 32 bit machines.

I should also add that I have made the necessary group policy changes to allow printer operators to Load/Unload device drivers and under the local policies/security options I ensured that the Prevent users from installing printer drivers was Disabled.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi there
Why does Windows Networking always seem to hose things up ( Linux works EVERY time)

I have two computers on the SAME test private LAN one Whitehorse (W2003 server) and the other Blackdog (W8 Enterprise) both enabled "Shareable and Visible".

View from W2003 -- can see and access disks C,D, and F on W8 Computer

View from W8 - Networking shows the computer Whitehorse (W2003 server) but can't access any disks etc (or even its printer). PING even fails but W8 obviously knows it's on the Network because its found it. The stupid Windows diagnostics when you click Diagnose doesn't help at all --in fact I've NEVER found the network diagnostic panel of the slightest bit of help ever.

I've switched off firewalls etc while testing so there's no security rubbish to take care of while I'm trying to get this to work. LAN is purely LOCAL -- no computer is on "the other side" of a router.

Both machines can access independently the Internet through a Local router and connections are via LAN cable so nothing should be simpler. !! But can I get this to work !!.

I had a similar problem with W7 but it seemed to "Disappear" without me actually doing anything -- the proverbial "Ghost in the Machine" I expect.

The new record can be display by Client 2, but can't be display by Client 1.

I have Win7 and Office 2010 both 64 bit. I also have a 32 bit application running where I need a 32 bit *.accdb
 (MS Access) ODBC driver. Using the 64-bit version of the Odbcad32.exe is returning “The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application”. So I need a
32 bit ODBC *.accdb driver for my application.
My problem:
When I open c:\windows\SysWOW64\odbcsys32.exe and try to ADD a new dsn there is only a *.mdb driver available for MS Access. Does anyone know how to
add a 32 bit MS Access *.accdb driver to c:\windows\SysWOW64\odbcsys32.exe? Maybe I missed something obvious but this is giving me headache after browsing through the Internet for a solution. 


A:32 bit ODBC driver for MS Access 2010 (*.accdb) is missing in Win7 64bit

Carl, I just figured out a solution... If you are running a 64-bit Computer and Running Access 2010, you will first need to download the AccessDatabaseEngine.exe from Microsoft.

After the download finishes, and installs, You will need to create an ODBC connection. Instead of creating an ODBC connection through your Administrative Tools, Data Sources (ODBC) interface, you will need to run the 64-bit instance of Data Sources (ODBC).
To do this, you will need to click your "Windows" + "R" buttons on the keyboard, and then paste "c:\windows\sysWOW64\odbcad32.exe" -- without quotes into the dialog. Then create the connection to the database as you would on a 32 bit machine.
I had the same issues with the *.accdb not showing up in my 64 bit ODBC connections. It then showed up after performing the above steps.
Hope this Helps,
Alex Mahrou

I've scouted around and cant find any solutions for this problem.

At our work, we have a shared documents server and also an email server to connect to. For some reason, on one computer only, I cannot connect to either my e-mail or the shared docs. It simply will not accept the credentials (ie my password for my username). It won't accept anyone else credentials either.

I have set up fine on another computer, and on my home computer which is on a different network. I can categorically say that it's a computer problem as the usernames/passwords work fine on every other computer, but this one cannot seem to connect.

Any ideas? I connect to the servers through a shortcut on the desktop, so i think it's the exchange or something I can't connect to.

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :

Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:


As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

This may apply to server 2K also:

When I open the Shared folders management console, and open the "sessions" folder, there is some information that confused me. I am using Active Directory w/ W2K & W98 clients.

1.) Sometimes, the user name appears as the computer's name with the '$', i.e. COMPUTERNAME$ as the username

2.) the computer name for the user has appeared different ways: as an IP address, as the NetBIOS computer name (i.e. COMPUTERNAME), and as a fqdn (i.e. COMPUTERNAME.local.domain).

Is there any rhyme or reason to this? Is there any way to set the display? THis only happens with the W2K clients. The W98 clients always appear as their NetBIOS name (i.e. COMPUTERNAME).

Any help is appreciated! TIA

I have a network consisting of:

1 - 1 Windows 2003 Server.
7 - 7 Windows XP Workstation PC,s

The network is configured as a peer-to-peer(no server logins are required). I have set up 4 shared folders on the Server.

Here's my problem: 6 PC's can access 2 of the 4 shared folders with only 1 PC being able to access all 4 folders on the server. When the 6 PC's try to access those 2 folders, I get an access denied error. what's interesting is that 1 PC is able to access, read, & write to all 4 folders while the other 6 can't access, read, or write to 2 of the folders. Since I have at least 1 PC that can access all 4 folders leads me to believe that the problem is not with the server but with the workstation PC's. The 1 PC that can access all 4 folders is running Windows XP Pro SP2

I would appreciate any help you can provide. By the way, this isn't the first time I've come across this problem.

Hi everybody

1 An Active Directory (AD) have numerous Registered Users (RU) to the Domain (DM) using Server 03 SP2.
2 Numerous PC running XPWin SP2 had joined the Domain and appears as PCs in the AD User / Computer dialog at the Server.
3 Numerous Shared Folders (SFd) in the Server are created to allow RU access.
4 When a RU logon to the DM from one the the PC, after entering the his password, RU can access all SFd without further request for password; ...this had been so for many years running.
After a power failure, RU can still logon to the DM BUT...
1 To access the SFd, User password (PWd) will be asked.
2 After a number of tries of knocking with the PWd, RU can then access the SFd. In certain PC, a different UserName with password had to done to access the SFd.
3 Also on restarting the Server and the running PCs, the problem of of PWd reappear.

1 Pinging with the TCP/IP address among all the PCs and server in both in/out has no problem at all.
2 One of the PC attached to another Switch don't seem to have this problem.

1 How to check what's happening? What is the normal process during the a) DM authentication b) Authentication of the Shared folders in the server?
2 How to solve this without rejoining the DM? Is resharing the folders in the DM the solution?

THANKS in Advance

Hi, i have both machines set up, my win7 (main) and my winxp (server). I use the xp to store files and to be able to use older accessories that no longer work on win7.

Such as i have a logitech webcam in which works great on xp but logitech stopped supporting the software updates for the cam after xp so the cam will not work on win7.

So my idea is to put the cam icon in the shared files and execute the cam on the xp machine via me clicking the shared icon. This way the cam will work just as if it was on my new machine (win7) but its actually running on the xp machine.

The problem is when i click the icon in the shared it tells me that the location does not exist, and i understand why, because it thinks that i want to execute it on my new machine C rather than the xp C drive.

So all i need to do is change the properties for the shared icon to read the network address rather than the logical address, i think thats right..

My drive location for the xp is SERVER1-PAVDTPC

The properties for the icon in shareddocs is:

Target: "C:\Program Files\Logitech\Video\Launcher.exe"
Start in: "C:\Program Files\Logitech\Video"

so i forget the syntax here. Is it something like

Target: \\ "SERVER1-PAVDTPC \Program Files\Logitech\Video\Launcher.exe"

something like that?

A:Running a webcam off a xp sp3 server using shared files

i dont think this is possible because it looks like the exe will execute on the 7 machine any way i try to access it, rather than execute on the xp machine. If i could get the address right i could try to work some kind of compatibility deal. I will keep you posted.

Win 7 with Outlook 2013 installed. Working as client to MS server
We have a shared contacts file for everyone in the building (10 clients) called "AMAG Contacts"

My Contacts – (now called People in O-2013)
Opens to my personal contacts (no prob). Not AMAG Contacts, but I can click on AMAG Contacts and open it OK. New emails default to the AMAG contacts OK. this Q is for whan I am opening the Contacts list.
When I click on AMAG Contacts it has a list of pictures and names.

When I open AMAG Contacts I can click >View>Change view>By Category (or whatever??)
BUT – neither AMAG Contacts nor my view change is persistent. I want the changed view to be persistent across closing O2013 and reopening it

1. Is there a way to default to AMAG contacts when opening contacts?
2. Is there a way to make my view of choice persistent? I like the Category view.

I cannot find any dialog that allows me to do the above.
Several others in the building have asked the same question and I think the older versions are more straightforward and controllable.
Can this be done? I perused Outlook options and saw nothing there either.
Pls advise
Thank you

We have a server that has XP pro on it and a laptop with Vista.
The vista computer used to connect to the XP server with out any problems.
there is a matching user account on both computers with passwords that match.
we had to replace the wireless router recently and since then the laptop will not connect any more.
the rest of the computers in the network all connect and have the same workgroup as the vista machine.
the vista machine will connect to the music server shared folders no passwords and to the ftp server shared folders no passwords.
the vista computer goes out of town alot and gets connected to hotel networks all accross the country.
the vista machine can print to a networked copy machine a networked printer and the internet.
All of the computers show up in the network screen in the vista computer, and in the xp computers.
when we try to open the shared folder or the server we get a login window asking for user and password. when we enter the correct user and password is says that it can not connect.

A:vista wont connect to shared files on xp server

If you have not done so thus far, I would suggest enabling the "guest" account on the "XP Server". This should allow the Vista box to connect to whatever is shared on your XP box.

Hope this helps,

File server is running MS Small Business Server 2000 with Active Directory on a local domain. There's a shared folder for everybody to access. Mapping the network drive is fine. Reconnect at logon is checked.

Problem is, sometimes when certain computers log out and log back in, the network drive permission is gone. It's still there in Explorer, but when you try to access it, it says "Connection could not be Restored." Any ideas? It's getting annoying to disconnect and reconnect every single time.

Hello everybody. We have a Windows 2000 server based domain. Recently we installed Windows Server 2003 x64 R2 edition to a new server and added this server to the domain only as a member server. On this w2k3 server we have several shared directories for all domain users. The problem we have is that though everything seems to be working fine, but after some time domain users cannot access those shared folders at all or the server takes a very long time to react. W2k3 server has SP2 and all of the available updates applied. EventViewer does not show any error messages and there seems to be no problem with the server, because when you log on directly everything looks fine the system doesn't crash or smth. Afer restart of the server everything works again for several hours until the problem appears again. What could be causing this problem with shared folders?

Recently I had networking my two computers together. Computer A [server] with Win XP Prof.+ SP2, Pentium 4 2.8 GHz. Computer B [workstation] with Win XP Prof. + SP2, Pentium II 350 MHz. Fast ethernet cards were installed on each computer and connect with a 4 ports swich. Computer B has Realtec RTL 8139 fast ethernet card. A telephone modenn is attached to Computer A. I ran windows networking wizard and use floppy disk method to install the Computer B. I turn Firewall off on both computers. It appeared that the networking is successed as I can view shared documents [containing shared picture, shared video and shared music] of both computers from either one. When I clicked on control panel >network connection, the diagram on both computers indicated that the local area network functioned. The problem is that after I made a new folder [I shared it and allowed maxium permission to view, edit data from other computer] for shared data file on copmuter A, I cannot access this file from computer B. Message " you do not have the right to this path ". Detail " you do not have right to \\ computer A name\new folder\sub-folder file.

A:trouble reading shared file in server from workstation

Is the folder you are trying to access SHARED? Make sure the EVERYONE FULL CONTROL is set on the SHARE permissions of the folder.

Go into the SECURITY tab of the folder and make sure EVERYONE is there and give them FULL CONTROL permissions.

(I would never recommend doing this on a larger network but since it is just a home network, this is the easiest way to troubleshoot. We can bring down the access rights once we figure out what is going on)

Hi Guys,

I was at a site where printers were setup and shared on a Win 2003 Server. The HDD on the server crashed and the HDD was ghosted to another drive.

The only problem is now i cant print to any of the shares on the server from any of the workstations. However, printing from the server to the printers are all ok. I've deleted the printers on the workstations and re-added them and it still will not work.

I do noticed that the jobs are sent from the workstation to the server queue (can see the job pop up in the queue box of both workstation and server) and then disappears like all is okay but i dont get a printout.

I've tried installing a new copy of the driver (replacing the drivers not keeping the existing drivers) and still no good.

I can however print from the server to the same share off a workstation without a problem.

Any help would be great.
