Hello,

I upgraded a computer to Windows 7 Ultimate from Vista to get around the 10 user maximum connection limit. Apparently the maximum connection limit in Windows 7 is 20 users instead of 10. However, when I use "net config server" in Windows 7 Ultimate, it still shows the limit as 10 users. I get an error when the 11th user tries to connect to the computer.

How do I set the connection limit to 20?

The problem is upgrading from Vista.

The 10 connection limit is from doing an upgrade instead of new load.

Upgrading from 97 to XP is a total new OS; not just upgrading what you have.

Windows 7 uses some of the same OS files. It is not a total new OS.
You have to do a clean install for 20 connections.

That was my first thought which is why I mentioned it in my first post. My PC allowed 20 connections immediately after my win 7 install.
