Connect Windows 7 to Windows 2000 File Share
Of course, it doesn't work out of the box. Worked fine on XP.. is Microsoft trying to be difficult? They think this'll convince me to finally upgrade my 2000 machine???
Well, here's the fix I found:
In Windows 7, go to the registry editor (regedit) and set the following key ???HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\LMCompatibilityLevel??? to ???1???.
It probably won't be there, so add it as a new DWORD key with decimal value 1.
Restart your machine!
Then it should work.
(Also ensure all firewalls/network configurations are correct. I did a bunch of other settings changes I can't recall and who knows if they helped)
