1. A Compaq laptop running Vista Home Basic cannot access the shared printer and folder on an HP desktop running XP Home Edition, SP2. I have downloaded and installed the LLTD add-on recommended by Microsoft, but the Vista machine still cannot see the XP desktop when I view the network. All machines on the home network have the same workgroup name. There are a couple of XP Home laptops that have no problem, and can easily access the printer and shared documents folder.
2. An HP laptop running XP home has a similar problem. I ran the networking wizard, gave it the same workgroup name, and it does not see the shared resources on its fellow XP desktop.
I would appreciate any help that will solve the problem.
