Samsung link shared PC folder empty after Win10


Since last year I've successfully been using Samsung Link to stream media from my Windows 7 computers to my Samsung UE55H7000 TV.

Yesterday I formatted my laptop and desktop computer and installed Windows 10 Home OS on both. Then I installed Samsung link and successfully reconnected the PC:s to the TV. When entering the PC-source however the 'shared folder' is now completely empty on both laptop and desktop source, despite mapping in media folders with media files in samsung link.

I have allowed the tv sharing ip in samsung link and made the same OS settings as before when it was working in Win7. The TV and router configuration should be OK since it hasn't changed since last it worked. The only thing changed is the laptop and desktop OS.

I've tried shutting down windows defender and firewall with no result. I've activated/allowed all sharing settings I've found in Win10 OS and I've allowed media streaming (DNLA) for my TV-unit in Win10 control panel.

I've also tried connecting the tv to a locally shared PC network folder source where I successfully accessed and played shared media on the TV! Meaning LAN settings should be OK but something is blocking the connection to samsung link shared folders.. Windows 10 OS setting??

I would really appriciate help getting samsung link working again. Thanks!
