Saving files from Vista Machine to xp network share



  • 1. Windows Vista
    This problem is on a desktop unit. When typing in programs or internet explorer the curser just stops and does not type anything. It does not catch up it just skips that letter. I am also having trouble seeing the peer to peer network from vista and I can not see the vista machine from my XP machines as well. Need help Please
  • 2. Vista/XP Permission Issue?
    Hi - I have a PC (Dell) with Vista Home, connected via ethernet to a router. I also have a laptop (Acer) connected by wireless to the same router. Both machines connect to the internet without any problems. I have placed both machines in the same workgroup, but am having trouble accessing either. From the Dell, I can ping the Acer (by IP and by name), but from the Acer I cannot ping the Dell at all. The Dell's Vista Network map shows the Acer as a device on the network. If I try to view the Dell from the Acer, I get the standard "Dell cannot be accessed. You may not have permission " error. I have done a few searches on the internet, but the plethora of possible solutions is somewhat confusing, so am looking for someone to point me in the right direction. TIA.

Saving files from Vista Machine to xp network share

Postby RGF2ZSBCZW5ldGVhdQ » Thu, 31 May 2007 04:12:00 GMT

we have 2 new laptops with Vista on them. Our current network is a Workgroup 
setup... each desktop has the ability to save on the server to a shared 
folder that is only accessable to the logon on that desktop. on the new vista 
machines, I am able to view the files on the network share and open them, but 
am unable to save anything to the network share.

Any ideas?

1.machine freezes when saving files on network share

i have just migrated a 30 user network onto a 2003 Small Business Server. Everything works great until a file is opened on a network share and changes are made and a save is attempted. upon executing the save function the workstations just lock up and i get a debugging message

this occurs on both 2000 pro and 98 se workstations

this is not happening on all machines so i am totally at a loss.

3.File Sharing xp machine to xp machine

I have a network of 8 machines.  Windows 98. Windows 2000 
and windows xp.  All machines are shared.  There  never 
was a problem sharing files until an xp machine tries to 
share from another xp machine.

Is there something I am missing?  

i am working with xp professional.  

Thank you,

4.Sharing printer on XP machine w/Vista machine

   OK, I've got 3 PCs as follows:
PC1 - Runs XP Media Edition with two printers attached & shared
PC1 - Runs XP Home Edition - uses the printers on PC1 via sharing.
PC3 - Runs Vista Business Edition.  Shares files & folders just fine, 
but for the life of me I cannot get it to add either printer that's on PC1.
   I've spent hours pouring over hundreds (thousands?) of posts here. 
Initially I was having sharing files & folders too, but once I added 
"everybody" to the permissions list on Vista, all my shared files 
problems went away.  This was cause for great jubilation and 
celebration.  :-)  However the positive atmosphere was once again 
stiffled when I went back and tried to access the printers on PC1 again. 
  Again I was totally foiled, and remain so.
   The printers I'm using are (1) A Samsung ML-1210 laser printer, (2) A 
Canon Pixima IP1600 inkjet; both connected via USB on PC1.  I connected 
the Samsung directly into PC3 to be sure I had a valid driver there & it 
worked just fine when directly connected.  But when I reconnected it 
back to PC1 (which runs XP), I just couldn't access it.  If I go to 
Control Panel -> Printers with Vista, I can click Add Printer and 
Network Printer and it successfully finds the two printers on PC1. 
However as soon as I click on one of their icons and click NEXT, I get 
the following two popups:
   "Connecting to ML-1200 on GT4010", then a second later
   " Windows cannot connect to the printer, access is denied".
I've turned off the firewalls on both PC1 & PC3, and tried all kinds of 
changes on the Vista PC3 including:
- Setting up an administrator ID on the Vista PC to match that on the XP 
- Changing the network to PUBLIC, then back to PRIVATE,
- Turning off TCPiv6
- Installing XP fix KB922120
- Turning "password protected sharing" on and off.
- Network discovery ON and OFF.
- Of course all the above was with Vista's File Sharing, Printer 
Sharing, and Public Folder Sharing, turned on.
- I tried downloading Network Magic, but two successive attempts ended 
in errors.
   COULD SOME WISE PERSON PLEASE HELP?!  Many thanks in advance - this 
is driving me crazy!

5.Can't share vista machine with xp machine

I just installed a new Vista machine onto a home network with two XP machines 
running on them.  The vista machine sees all the shared folders on the XP 
machines, and my XP laptop sees the shared folders and printer on the vista 
machine.  But the XP desktop does not see the vista machine when accessing my 
network places.  However, when I select "view workgroup computers" the Vista 
machine is displayed.  And when I select properties for the vista in that 
window, I get an error message that reads "You do not have the appropriate 
access rights for the server."  All the machines use PC-cillin, and have the 
same firewall settings.  But, I did once have Norton Antivirus on the 
desktop, but I removed it using the Norton Removal Tool.  Is there a more 
speciific settting I have to make in the Vista machine or the XP machine to 
allow the XP to access the Vista shared folders?
