I have two desktop computers A (Windows 7 Home premium)and B (Windows 7 Home basic), both using Windows 7.
They are connected to a router. Computer A connects to the router using LAN cable (IPv4 address is 192.168.131.1; subnet mask is 255.255.255.0; no default gateway), whereas computer B connects to the router using wireless connection (IPv4 address is 192.168.0.101; subnet mask is 255.255.255.0; default gateway is 192.168.0.1).
Currently, I have purchased and installed a proprietary multi-user software in in a folder in the C-drive for accounting purpose in computer A. The software comes with a dongle that must be plugged into the computer A to allow the software to work as full-subscription mode.
I did not install the software in computer B. Next, I performed 'map network drive' in computer B, hoping to allow sharing of that specific folder of C-Drive in computer A to the network location of computer B. However, when I tried to access the installed program in computer B, the program appears as a demo version (still until the moment of writing). I can access the installed program in full subscription mode in computer A.
Could this be a program's credential issue? This two windows 7 computer are not connected through home group as for now. Can anyone provide me with advice and suggestion to enable the shared program in the mapped network drive of computer B to access the program in full-subscription mode instead of demo version? Thank you.
