There are 3 machines on my network (I don't use Home Group), my friend's XP Home laptop, her Win 7 Pro desktop and my Win 7 Pro desktop. Her machines are 32 bit, mine is 64 bit.
I have just installed Win 8 Pro on my desktop. How do I set up networking this with the other 2 machines without using Home Group. (I know you can't use Home Group to network with XP machines anyway).
One related point-whenever I check Services on my desktop machine the Computer Browser service is off, although it is set to Automatic. How can I correct this?
Advice would be appreciated.
Thanks and regards, Roy
