File sharing between XP Home and XP Pro

by bill - 2009-01-01 - ( education / tech / computers / software )

PROBLEM:
You get this error message when trying to access a Windows XP Home computer from a Windows XP Pro computer: 
     "The user has not been granted the requested login type at this computer"

SOLUTION:
On the XP Home computer (shouldn't be necessary on the Pro computer), run this:
     START > Control Panel > Network Setup Wizard

Leave the "Home" PC name as it was (as long as it's unique), but make sure the WORKGROUP is THE SAME on both computers. It also simplifies things if both computers are using the same USER name.
