I have an 12gb file on my desktop running windows xp. I desperately need this file on my laptop running windows 7 home 64 bit

I have a router. The setup is as follows:

1) the Ethernet cable from the modem is connected to the internet port in it.
2) The laptop and desktop are connected to the modem via an ethernet cable.

How do i get the 12 gb file from the desktop running windows xp to the laptop running windows 7.

Please can someone help me.

I appreciate all answers.
Thank you
My regards,

Have you shared the folder that contains the file?

You might have to disable the firewall temporarily on the pc that has the file.
