WD Discovery does not work on XP or Windows 7


I can’t see my world book with the WD Discovery application. It just doesn’t work. I’ve tried it on two separate laptops running different OS’s. I can map the network drive in XP, and see the shared folder in Windows 7 - So I thought no big deal.

However, to get the licences for the WD anywhere backup you need to use the WD Discovery!!!

Is there any other way of doing this?

Is there a reason the WD Discovery doesn’t work?



Hi Ollie-GBR! Do you got a solution for the prob? Ive got a similar prob, when WD discovery starts I get an “error message” and then it close, I have tried on 2 differnt laptops. If you got a hint please wrigth!!! mvh y3zHiM
