Dear All, Thanks before for your tech support.

In our office we have 10 winxp pcs, workgroup as workgroup, tcp/ip is set to obtain ip address automatically, with 16port dlink ethernet switch.

Now, we took one new dell pc with win7 home basic. We want d:\ drive in win7 pc should be accessible from all 10 winxp pcs.

New win7hb pc is shown in workgroup of winxp pcs, but when opening d:/drive, access denied error is coming.

Please guide us how to do the drive sharing.

change the workgroup name with another one, it is up to you.
on your Win 7, click on OPEN NETWORK SHARING CENTER, in the left corner click on HOMEGROUP: click on WHAT IS A NETWORK LOCATION: choose HOME NETWORK then close the dialogue box. after a few moments another dialogue box will show up, check all option available (picture, printer, documents.... all) and then click on SAVE.

go to one of your desktop running win XP, click on the drive D of the desktop running Win 7, i think that a dialogue box will appear asking you to enter credentiel before geting acces to the pc . those credentiel are the username and the password that are in use on your win 7. enter them and click on remember my credential.
done!
good luck
