I have tried to set up a homegroup with pc and laptop both using w7.
I can see the setup on both and the laptop will access the files on pc but the pc host will not find the laptop.
I have pinged both and they seem to be ok.
If I double click on computer and my laptop on the pc I get a message that it is not accesible.
Why can the laptop access the pc but not the other way.
I have the pc wired to the Sky netgear router and the laptop to router.
I have tried dozens of suggestions from Microsoft help pages and others by tearing my hair out now.
I need the pc to access laptop as I have Easy duplicate removal program on pc but need to acces files on laptop.
I`m getting windows error 0x80070035 network path not found.
Doing a google search for that error code brings up hundreds of hopefull resources but no help as I`d done all that.
Who said setting up a Homegroup was easy??
