    The Win 7 & 8, to each other. no problems

    The Win 10 10041 & 10049 won't accept Homegroup. Accept all the share settings
    but DON'T do it. Demand login for ANY other PC and vice-versa.

    Happy for your success but has eluded me.

    obtw... These are all upgrades, not clean installs,
    was dumb enough to start Win 10 on main PC's & am hoping
    MS Win 10 team fixes the issues before a fresh install and
    rebuild everything is required. yeah, technical builds. sigh

    I posted a link to MS Help with various scenarios for networking........... did you look at that?
    I don't like Homegroup and Windows seems to always set one up automatically.
    Maybe a Home Network would serve you better. Download a copy of that page above and, you know the old saying, RTFM

    Fix for my Homegroup and Sharing Problems Win 10


    AndyL said: View Post
    Ok.... So I've read the posts on here - and still can't make it work!!
    Homegroup:
    Could see the Homegroup set up from the win 7 desktop from the win 10 laptop, but when I put the password in, it eventually told me there was no homegroup available!
    So, left that Homegroup, set up another one from the Win 10 Laptop - and can see all the Win 8 laptops, but not my desktop running win 7. Strangely, the printer share on the Win 7 desktop still works!

    Sharing:
    Can see the machine - and the shares I have set up, but cannot access as I get the 'Don't have permissions' error.
    So went to Credentials Manager, but there is something already set up for the Desktop for the homegroup.
    Anything I try to add - just overwrites this! Can I set up multiple passwords for the same machine?

    BTW - I do not have passwords set on the Desktop running Win 7 - in case thats relevant.
    (and dont have a password on the Win 10 laptop either)

    Any help will stop me pulling more hair out!

    Thanks guys.
    Andy

    My problem I believe is related to yours. I will start by saying I often know a little about a lot of things so my knowledge can sometimes be dangerous. When I upgraded my two computers to Windows 10 (1 Desktop Win 7 Home Premium and 1 Laptop Win 7 Home) I repeatedly kept attempting to create new Homegroups but each time they would disappear and I would find there was an old "ghost" homegroup from an old computer only allowing to join an already established homegroup and the new passcode entry would run, and run, and run, without ever connecting. I would then learn there was still detected an existing homegroup. What I did is below and I understand this may also fix problems related to joining a legitimate homegroup as well- it was a fix originally found for Windows 7 but worked with my new Windows 10.

    In short, you need to remove some files from the Peer Networking folder in order to fix this problem. First make sure in your folder options you "show hidden files and folders".

    You then delete all files in PeerNetworking (including folders); c:\windows\serviceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking.

    I started both computers (would have opened them all if I had more) and did it on each machine on the network and then immediately went to "Leave the Homegroup"- (left-click on either the wired network icon or the wireless network icon in the bottom right of the taskbar, then click on Network Settings, Homegroup, and click "Leave the Homegroup"). I then shut down the computer I was not creating the new Homegroup on, created the Homegroup on my desktop computer, got the passcode, and opened my laptop.

    Great news- it worked! I was able to open the "Network and Sharing Center" by right-clicking on the network icon, and next to "Access Type", "Homegroup" it said something to the effect of "available". When I clicked on "available" it asked for the passcode, I entered the one given when I created the new homegroup, and everything was good to go from there! I hope this helps and yours is as simple to solve! Good luck my friend!

    Thank you so much . We had 5 computers and none of them would recognize old home group password. we are now all up and running,
