When i try to i get a warning box titled sharing. It says "An error occured when trying to share H. The server service is not started. The shared resource was not created at this time." I checked in the services under administrative tools and cannot see the server service at all. I am running xp pro corp with sp1. I also have sp2 on cd but havent installed yet as i heard it interfers with games. Could sp2 fix it?
