File Sharing Error Message

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?RmlsZSBTaGFyaW5nIEVycm9yIE1lc3NhZ2U=?=, Feb 6, 2005.

  1. I've been reading through the postings but don't see anyone with this exact
    problem. I'm trying to do simple file sharing but whenever I try to enable
    sharing on a folder (no matter what folder, even outside docs and settings or
    whatever), I get a message saying an error occured, the server service was
    not started, a shared resource was not created. I've been able to share
    files on this computer before and sharing is enabled. Tried shutting off the
    firewall, no difference. I have full permissions as administrator. Help?
    thanks...

  2. Make sure the Server service status is started.

    Click Start, Run, and type "services.msc". Open Services and scroll down to
    the Server service, start the service and set it to automatic.
