    Running Windows 7 RC 1 on both a PC and a Laptop...
    Using Network, I can access the laptop from the PC, BUT, I can't access the PC from the Laptop. Also, I can't print to the printer attached to the PC from the Laptop.
    When I attempt to access the PC from the Laptop I get a message, "\\PC NAME is not accessable. You might not have permission to access this resource."
    When I attempt to print from the Laptop, it goes into limbo. I set up the printer manually, but no go.
    I've tried a lot, but ....help![​IMG]

    I had the exact same problem and just solved it after a lot of head banging!!

    Just check that in control panel the credential manager is running and that there is an entry in the for the PC\homegroupuser$.

    If your credential manger is disabled then re-enable through gpedit.msc and changing this setting:
    Computer Config\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\Network access: Do not allow storage of passwords and credentials for network authentication
    Please ensure that this policy is disabled.

    Once enabled leave and re-join the homegroup and then reboot.

    Hope it works for you.
