i would apreciate to see this patch in regular showtime builds. i set a password on my win 7 pc just to have access via showtime. its not a big deal though to enter a password everytime i enter my pc.
but its a nice fix.

Ok, it seems it still suck a bit.

But i'm not sure what you mean by "removed my passwrod protection on my windows7"

I have a win7 myself but i'm no windows expert so if you could clarify a bit what you do it would help me a lot.

When u start your pc there is a login screen (to get access to ur desktop) where u have to put in a password, if u set one. its the same password u have to enter in showtime if u want to access a folder on that pc.

i removed that password on my windows 7 pc to test the new showtime build, but it doesnt work. i get the following message (unable to open resource).

#12 Updated by Andreas Smas almost 9 years ago

Ok, these fixes are needed but it also seems like windows 7 requires you to deactivate "password protected sharing" in "Network and sharing center" -> "Advanced settings" or it will respond
with "Account restricted" when trying to connect.

#13 Updated by D Z almost 9 years ago

i will try the new build next tuesday. ive already deactivated "password protected sharing". i can access all my shared folders with my laptop, without antering a password or sth. (so that warks). only showtime wasnt able to access my shared folders.

THX.
