All 3 computers on my LAN were set as members of a WORKGROUP, my OS being Win 7 Pro 64 bit, whereas the other 2 used XP Home.One of the other 2, my friend's desktop, has changed to Win 7 32 bit.Neither my friend nor I need to access the other (laptop) computer so I joined a homegroup on the Win 7 machines.
When I open Services on the Win 7 machines I can start the HomeGroup Provider service, and have done so. However, I cannot start the HomeGroup Listener service on either machine. I get "Server-Service Specific error code 2147023143." How do I resolve this?
Apart from that, should I change the WORKGROUP designation of the Win 7 machines, and if so how and what to?
FWIW, irrespective of the above, each Win 7 machine can access the shared folders on the other.
Advice would be appreciated.
Thanks and regards, RoyOS Dual Boot Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit & Windows 7 Pro With SP1 64 bit. (Intel Core i7 2600K Processor LGA1155-Asus P867 Pro Motherboard-GTX550 Ti DirectCU Graphics Card-Memory 8GB)
