Sharing - Win 7 Share - Win 10 access

Just added a new Win 10 Pro desktop to the network.   It needs to access a Win 7 desktop shared folder.

I get the error message 

Windows cannot access \\NAComp1-PC

Check the spelling of the name.  Otherwise, there might be a network problem.

0x80070035

The network path was not found.

On the Win 10 computer, I can type in \\NAComp1 (the name of the Win 7 computer) and it doesn't appear.   I can ping the IP address.   

On the Win 10 computer, I cannot access via \\10.1.10.200 either.  (same error message as above)

Services - changed both of these to auto and started manually

* Function Discovery Provider Host

* Function Discovery Resource Publication

I can see a test share from the Win 7 computer to the Win 10 computer.

Suggestions are so welcomed.

Darryl

network sharing is checked on both computers

Hi,  

I have nearly the same problem, however, all was working fine, for a couple of years, until this past week.  I'm assuming an update has broken it.   I have 1 computer with Windows 10 home, 1 with Windows 7 enterprise, my Android phone, and my Android TV.  All were used to access files on the Win 7 computer. 

Before

The Windows 10 machine could see the shared resources via windows explorer as normal

The Android phone uses the Solid Explorer app with an SMB connection - SMB 1 or 2 is selectable

The Android TV uses media center software to connect to the shared folder via SMB (Its not using shared media services)

After

The Windows 10 machine can see the Win 7 computer on the network but can not access the shared folders, the error code 0x80070035 comes up when attempted

The Phone's Solid Explorer app gives a "The handle is invalid" error when attempting to view shares resources

The Media center software errors and asks to re-enter credentials

I can see the shared resources of the Win 10 computer from all devices, including the Win 7 computer

On another note, I also have remote desktop server running on the Win 7 computer and can no longer access it from any computer

I have tried everything in the links provided except for the "Homegroup" options because I have no other Win 7 computers, the Win 10 computer longer supports homegroup, and teh android devices are SMB.  I am at wits end.  I will try an alternate network card that I happen to have..  

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Just an update.  I've tried an alternate Network adaptor, and enabled Netbios over TCP/IP but all remains the same.  I cannot access the Win 7 shared files over the network.

I've also removed all shares & re-shared, including Everyone permissions on each share with no joy.

As it turns out for my issue, described below,  it was this problem...

I uninstalled the update and everything is back to normal.

I did not see the update on the computer.   This was a out of the box computer with the latest security updates applied.

Too All:

Over the last week I've tried most all of the suggestions.  On the Win 10 and the Win 7 desktops.   Nothing helped.   I reset the Win 10 Pro desktop (it was new so nothing lost except time).  No joy.

So I took a alternate route:   since the Win 7 computer could see shares on the Win 10 computer - I just moved the database (Access and VB) to the Win 10 computer.  I had to redo all the mapped drives on the other desktops but that was a minute at each.  It works fine.

I think the Win 7 computer (even though only a year old) was somehow corrupt (?).  Because I was able to get to shared folders on other computers (temp ones I setup for testing).   So I want to blame this on the Win 7 computer that was housing the database.

This wasn't a easy decision since there are other work flows that are affected but those will just have to be dealt with.

I have other fires.

Thanks to everybody!   Always a joy to see what others are up against and the solutions.   I always learn alot!

Thanks!

Darryl
