I’m having the famous problem of not being able to get access to my Windows 7 folder shares. I’ve tried everything in all the forums (I think!). One common solution given is to uninstall Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant. This is NOT available to me to uninstall. I do see the service running, however, and have disabled it but this does not help. I’ve uninstalled every component of Windows Live I can find but this service remains. How are you all uninstalling this thing?
If you can’t Uninstall it, your only choice at that point is to do a restore to a Restore Point that was created before it was installed.
You could try reinstalling it, then it may appear in the add/remove prgorams and you’ll be able to uninstall it
That was indeed the solution - I reinstalled Windows Live and then was able to find Sign-in Assistant to uninstall. And … I can now see my Windows 7 shares! I am now fully convinced that all the tweaks being suggested are not required - set up a proper share, make sure you DON’T have Windows Live Sign-in Assistant installed, and things should work fine. Thanks to all those who have shared their thoughts.
HI Everyone!! how are you?
I have some problemas likes you!..
When I am trying to see a movie from my Notebook (with Windows 7 64 bit ), i can see the Video, but the subtitle didnt appears, the same movie and subtitle on my External HD or from a friend´s notebook (with Windows XP, NETWORK SHARE) works vey well.
Do you know what i mean?
Do you think that if i uninstall de Windows Live ID and then plays the movie from a NETWORKSHARE en WDTV, the poblem will fix?
If you can see the video, then sharing is working for you.
I don’t think external subs are supported over the network – I think they have to be attached locally.
Nah, external subs work fine over Network Shares. But they do NOT work if accessing them via DLNA (A/K/A Media Servers).
Ah, thanks Tony… that must have been what I was (mis)remembering. All my subs are internal, so I have no experience in what works and what doesn’t with externals.
I will uninstall the “windows live ID”, and then i will try by NETWORKSHARES (with out user and pass )…then i´ll tell you!
Thank you very much!
