can't quite remember...but while looking for a solution to get my Vista
Business and XP Pro to communicate via VPN, i think i ran across somethign
saying to enable the PUBLIC folder and the MEDIA folders to see if what u
need works? You could try that then disable them again to see if anythign
works? I don't use those (2) features either, so don't need them on...but
worth a try.
keep googling.... i ran across a few pages with help for this....but did not
i like Vista also, but man... seems like some MAJOR bugs for the most
important things...that just should NOT be in a primetime release..yes i
understand bugs will exist...but seems very rediculous ones! Macs are
looking quite attractive these days!
