I have a Windows 7 Professional PC on a home network that I would like to share media from. However none of my other home computers will recognize the PC as a media device, though they do recognize each other. The PC in question is visible to the other PCs too, just not its media library. I'm dumbfounded as I'm confident that I've shared what I could.
The other PCs are Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows 7 Home Premium.
Does this have anything to do with IIS, since this is the only networking feature that I identify to be different from the other two systems? The specification for the PC is as follows:
- Windows 7 Professional 32-bit
- Windows Media Player 12
- Media Streaming - enabled
- File, printer, music and video sharing - enabled
- Network discovery - enabled
- Media sharing is set to allow all
- Allowing all access in firewall
- Setting the user to Local System and restarting the Windows Media Sharing service
- Resetting firewall defaults, and then re-enabling media streaming
- Restarting the PC
- Disabling and enabling UPnP in the router settings
- Changing homegroup to make sure they were on the same one (MSHOME)
