Can't access XP sytem folder files from Win 7 Tags: LAN Windows 7 Systems Windows XP Networking Last response: December 20, 2012 7:31 PM in Networking Share Mountainwalk December 20, 2012 4:06:27 PM Hi! I'm having trouble accessing system files from my XP machine through my Windows 7 network. This is the error that I get: "Network Error Windows cannot access \\xpuser\c\windows You do not have permission to access \\xpuser\c\windows. Contact your network administrator to request access." I'm admin on both systems(home). Even after searching online, I still haven't come across a solution to my problem. Please Help!
