I have a desktop PC running Windows 7 Professional and a laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate.
My desktop has all my files and documents.
I set up a Homegroup between the desktop and laptop so that I can use the laptop out in the workshop and access my reference material that I keep on the desktop.
On the desktop, when I go to My Computer - Homegroup I click on the laptop icon, then the documents library and the documents library opens up and gives me access to the few documents that I have on the laptop. No problem.
When I click on Network it shows me icons for my pc and laptop. When I click on laptop I get the icon Users Share. That brings up my files on the laptop. No problem.
On the laptop, when I go to My Computer - Homegroup I click on the pc icon, then when I click on the documents library icon I get the hourglass momentarily and then nothing happens. Same with the other libraries.
When I click on Network it shows me icons for my pc and laptop. When I click on pc I get a pop-up that says Windows Security. Enter your password to connect to pc. See photo. I put in my Homegroup password and get the error: unknown user name or bad password. That must be what's hanging things up.
I have no clue as to where to go from there. I've set the Homegroup on both computers not to require passwords.
I don't use passwords to log on to my computers and I don't recall every having a "network password" or being asked for one until now.
Appreciate any help you can give.
