    Hi

    My laptop running xp cannot access files on my desktop running vista.

    Desktop can access files on laptop, I can also access files laptop>desktop
    using Laplink.

    Error message says talk to administrator (me) don't have appropriate
    permission.

    Don' t know whether this problem first manifested itself when I changed
    routers. Have tried without firewall on router and on desktop.

    I believe sharing is set appropriately. I am not being asked for any
    passwords and I do know them.

    Can anyone give me some suggestions as to what I should look at please?

    Regards

  2. David,

    I'm not a Vista expert. I have worked around it by creating, in vista, the
    same user account I have in XP. Same name and password.

    Hope this help.
