Hello, I just set up a homenetwork between my desktop with XP sp3 and my new laptop with Windows 7. I was able to share the printer and see each others shared folders , but everytime I want to open the files on XP from my laptop it gives me the very common message of "You might not have permission to use this network resource” .... “Err Msg: Not Enough Server Storage Is Available to Process This Command”. Although I don't have that problem accessing to my laptop's folders from desktop. I've alredy tried uncheking the "simple sharing option" and did not work.

I had the same problem.

I could not access files on XP from Win 7, when I was logged on as non-admin user.
I needed permission to do it, so sharing worked only when I was logged on as administrator.
Never tried to find out why is that. <_<
