I have a computer running windows 8.1.
I had previously created a homegroup on my computer, and updated to Windows 10. I reverted back to Windows 8.1, and was no longer a member of the homegroup I had previously created.
When I try joining that homegroup, it says 'This homegroup no longer exists'.
No other PC's on the network see this homegroup. When I open 'Control Panel/HomeGroup' I see this:
Then, when I click Join - I get this series:
I enter the password, and then...
I have tried removing all the PeerNetworking files, restarting the HomeGroup and PeerNetworking services, rebooting, etc. Nothing seems to work.
I also tried renaming my computers Computer Name in the system settings, that did not work either.
Does anyone have ANY other suggestion other than what I have found on the net so far?
