Probem with peer to peer.....

by stange / July 31, 2005 11:42 PM PDT

Everytime I try to share a folder on a PC I get the following error:

An error occurred while trying to share "share name". The data is invalid.
The shared resource was not created at this time.

I'm not a newbie - but I can't figure this out!!!

nothing really in those - they are mostly about the server service not running.

3 XP Home PC's

No internet connection.

All joined to a workgroup. Thru 10/100 switch.

No firewall. MS firewall is disabled.

The PC that can't share any folders - DOES have shared folders on it already. The PC acts as a server - so the other PC's access data off of this PC.
