I'm trying to set up a network share folder for Windows 7 so we can use Quick books Enterprise 7.0 in multi user mode. I've tried everything that Quickbooks has said to do and everything in Windows 7, we've tried a homegroup, a shared folder mapped as a drive, etc. Nothing has worked, all the other files/folders show up on the other systems but not the folder we're storing our QB data in. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

So when you map a drive directly to that QBData folder, you don't see the QB files? – BigHomie Feb 25 '13 at 21:28
We tried to map it to the QB folder but it wouldn't let us. We could map a drive to the parent folder but the QB folder wasn't there on the other systems on the network. – Blake Feb 25 '13 at 21:37
Was there an error message when you tried to map to the QB folder? – BigHomie Feb 25 '13 at 21:37
It just says that the folder isn't there... it doesn't have the permission to view it or something even though everything on the other computer (as far as I know) is configured to allow access to any computer on the network. – Blake Feb 25 '13 at 21:41
Were the permissions explicitly set on this folder to allow access to the Everyone group, or some other group? – BigHomie Feb 25 '13 at 21:49
