Can't join Homegroup


ventanas

Likes # 0

Two new Acer laptops. All I get is a message that they cannot join. No explanation.

My existing laptop and the desktop the Homegroup was created on are fine.

Everything in Network sharing etc is turned.

All machines can "see" one another in Explorer and all run Win7 Home Premium

Does anyone have any ideas please.

Have you created the Homegroup password which you will need to connect to other computers?
