    crashnburn, have you tried installing the Vista Drivers? they should work. i'm using the latest Vista Drivers on my 8600GTS

    you may need to reinstall Windows 7 to reinstall WMP12.
    kuroikenshi says thanks.

    TBH, I have reason to beleive even though that they are split by OS and video card type, that they are basically all the same driver.

    What would be the point if Windows Vista drivers (x64) are the same as Windows 7 drivers (x64)?

    Windows Vista and 7 are built on the same engine. i think. the Vista Drivers are working fine for me. the Widgets from Vista work on Windows 7 as well. really can't hurt to try and see for yourself.

    You need to disable driver signing.. read one page back theres a link for an app that will automatically do it every boot, you can then use rivatuner.

    I need help with two 7100 systems and file sharing issues.

    short version: i create shares as always, with share access and permissions on the security tab as applicable ("everyone" has read access)
    • In 7100, both 7100 machines can see each other (same homegroup)
    • a build 7000 machine gets permission denied trying to access the machines (before any folders show up)
    • another build 7000 machine with the same username and password can access one machine, but not the other with a different username.
    • If either machine leaves the homegroup, shares stop working
    • two build 7000 machine cannot access shares, even if its in the same homegroup
    • password protected sharing works, so long as i have the same username and password on my machine. this is not acceptable, as i need this to work at a LAN event.

    As far as i can tell, sharing simply doesnt work in 7100 x64, UNLESS its in a homegroup with other 7100 machines.

    Any help?

    Why not get all machines running Build 7100?

    :confused:

    MS obviously wants everyone running the latest build, and I see no reason personally not to do so. :)

    The whole system has probably been tweaked from 7000 to 7100 anyway, making them incompatible.

    feel free to tell everyone at a 50 person lan to format and upgrade to build 7100. I'll be waiting with a camera to see what they do to you.

    edit: Weird update - if i type the share in directly //mussels-pc/dump, it actually works after a while. its accesing the PC to get the shares list itself thats failing.

    Ditto :p. People shouldn't whine about a beta build of W7 not being compatible with a release candidate build of W7.

    guys... its not just 7100. vista cant access it either. you cant homegroup in vista, so i cant make it work there either.

    the 7100 machines cant even access each other, outside of homegroup.

    Probably a extra security feature somewhere you need to adjust. Its quite unlikely a bug like that would get overlooked in a release candidate build. AFAIK 7100 is going to be the retail shipping build of W7.

    There is no way build 7100 will be the shipping build, even if it feels that finished.

    I have found one bug already.

    Yes, ONE bug, if it is a bug and not something else. Nothing is perfect on conception.

    Even still it wont be the Final.

    But I still believe this is the first and last Release Candidate as MS originally said.

    I highly doubt, 4-5 months ago the Beta was released and in another 4-5 months it should be RTM time :D
