Thanks. I wasn't aware of the Amazon reader, guess I should have been. I'll try that one.

Neither of these let you run Windows 7's calculator on an XP machine, as OP asked.

@Blorgbeard - it doesn't. Calc.exe returns an error message

@HaydnWVN - The image server seems to have suffered from hickups, but it should be solved

@HaydnWVN - They have different names. They're on the same subnet (192.168.1.*), and have the same subnet mask (255.255.255.0). I have folders shared with "full control" to "everyone", but that's of little use if the other PC doesn't show on the network in the first place :-(. I might have thought there's something basic missing, but it did work after installation, and I didn't change any of the network settings. Thanks for your thoughts.

@HaydnWVN - typing the IP address directly in the explorer address bar results in a timeout error (cannot connect). I can ping the other PC, though.

"solved" by rebooting. I still have the feeling that this is not the proper answer, nor a proper solution.

That's why I say useful for some people. BTW, what's "NP"? Nondeterministic polynomial? Nurse practitioner? :-)
