To my understanding, the "public" folder is a main folder where you can stick anything you want accessible to the other units in the group without having to go to the hassle of making those items sharable.

There is a minor glitch with the home-group on my XP; both Win 7 units show the XP as included in the home-group; and, my Win 7 shows the wife's Win 7 laptop; however, the XP only shows my Win 7 and not the laptop.

However, the laptop can retrieve stuff from the XP.


When I actually get some function or other about computers to work, I seldom have any clue as to just what I did to make it work.

BuckSkin, Melita wants to access the whole computer so I don't think it practical to move everything into "public" folder.

Melita, I think Teamviewer may be what you want. It was suggested by Bo earlier.

I did test TeamViewer. Its very easy to use.

Melita, this is what I found. The installer is less than 7 MB. And the folder in Program files for TeamViewer is less than 28 MB. Not a heavy program at all.

Installing the program takes about half of minute. After installing the program in both computers, you open the User interface. If you want to transfer files from the XP to the W7, you tick the option to do that and in the XP you type the ID number that you see in the W7. After submitting, a prompt opens up asking you to type the W7 password that you see in the W7 TeamViewer User interface. Thats all.

After you do that, you see something like a two sided Windows explorer in the XP. There, after choosing what you want to transfer to the W7. You click Send and in the W7, you ll see something like a log that shows the process, when its over, you can read that files have been transferred. I found the files in Users>Bo folder.

This program is well known and clean. Its easy to use, just follow what I wrote above and you ll be able to do what you want.

I can also tell you that it uninstalls really easy. So, after you are finish transferring files, you can uninstall it without any problems.

Bo

Yes Joe, I should have done what Bo suggested in the first place! Thank you.

Thank you Bo. This should be a better solution than Home group or Workgroup, for my purpose. I'll get back after I download and use it.

Best regards,

Thank you for these 2 links. One of them says that "It is assumed that the two machines can ping one another over the network". That is exactly the problem I had throughout. Windows 7 can ping XP but not vice-versa!

Other thing is, my XP properties dialog box [attached (XP.jpg)], is quite different to what is shown in the 1st link above (XP-2.jpg).

Best regards,

Hello Bo,

The "Team viewer setup" has a number of options. Do I go for "Basic Installation" or "Installation to access this computer remotely" ?

Do I select any "Advanced settings" (at the bottom of the Setup Window)?

Regards,

It sounds like you need to submit a ticket on the TeamViewer website:

I am not so sure because the setup loaded and opened the set up window and wanted me to select different options, without any 'ticket' being created. I need assistance to select best option for me Please see attachment.

Thank you'

Yes, no ticket.

I think I picked Basic installation and also ticked Personal Non commercial use. I remember ticking Advanced settings as well. I installed the programs virtually so after testing them, I got rid of them.

I tell you what I ll do, I ll do it again tonight, about 3 hours from now and I ll post screens or at least give you more detailed information about what to tick and what not to tick.

Since you were talking about transferring files thats all I tried. And I would do the same this time as well.

Later

Bo
