I get the following error message when running windows network diagnostics. I ran the diagnostic because I have a network with Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit on one computer and WinXP 32 bit on the other. Strangely enough I can easily see and manipulate through the winXP firewall all files. The other way, WinXP can not see the files on Win7. I can drag files to the shared folder, XP can see them but can not open them even when I allow sharing using Win7. I can see the Win7 computer name and I have an open home network without passwords. When I click on the folder with XP, the grey popup error box says I may not have permissions to access these files. Contact the systems administrator etc. My network has the same name on both computers so I feel completely betrayed by what is going on here. There should be no problem yet there is one.
I get this error message when running windows network diagnostics:
Either the Peer Name Resolution Protocol service (PNRPsvc) or the Peer Networking Identity Manager service (p2pimsvc) is not running The Peer Networking Grouping service (p2psvc) depends on both these services in order to function properly
I have followed the following advice to no avail:
· To find out which of the services are/aren't running Click on the start orb and type Services into the search box at the bottom of
the menu. Select Services from the results.
Check the Status and Startup type columns for "Started" and "Manual"
Right click any that aren't running and select Properties from the menu.
Click on the Startup type box and select Manual from the menu, then click Apply, then OK at the bottom of the window.
Now try Start the service from the option in the main window.
Try the HomeGroup connection, if the service(s) start
Try a reboot if all is well. The settings may or may not stick!
Scroll down till you see the following.........
