General failure
12/01/2018 10:19
My laptop Win 7 harddrive gave up, requiring a new 'un and a new install of Win 7, now all done and completed with the exception of one thing.

I now can't get LanMan98 version 2.04 to do the business.

I'm getting either General failure or Access Denied The directory in question on the Win side is set Shared (It has the appropriate icon).

I've set various permissions, but still LM won't connect.

Anyone have any ideas, please, as the GM is rattling the bars of his cage rather hard.

Unfortunately that was already done yesterday after the reinstall of Win 7.

Anymore? Dave Whatever it is, it's specific problem with the Win 7 machine.

The Win 7 machine can see and access shared items on the Win XP machine, but the XP machine cannot get at the shares on the Win 7 machine.

LM98 and XP still interface okay sharewise.

As someone who actually likes XP-SP3 (once all the cr*p has been nLited out of it) and has never gotten on with any flavour of *NIX, it worried me a lot what I would do for a jobbing OS once support stops.

Thankfully I find Win7 isn't so bad once you get used to it's foibles, and a great deal can be done to civilise it's (security) excesses and remove the added nonsense by using vLite.

Still, I do find if one has various OSs (some a bit 'old') all mixed up on the same network XP-SP3 remains much less of a pain in the rectum than Win7.

next months issue of WROCC will hopefully have an article written by me on this LanMan98 to Windows 7 share business as part of our ongoing series on Networking.

The networking Guide WROCC published at the Wakefield show is still available at a small cost.

Don't ask what I clicked, set/reset I have no idea.

LanMan98 will not work with the higher security level.

The extra security is there for a very good reason.

It's getting familiar with the software, that you have an issue with not what it can do.

All being well, LanMan98 to Windows 7 will probably follow that, in December. We can then wind the networking up (unless anyone thinks of other topics to investigate) with a look at Sunfish, Moonfish and NFS in the new year.

Windows is like that.
