    I CURRENTLY HAVE PEACHTREE ACCOUNTING SOFTWARE INSTALLED ON MY DESKTOP AND AM TRYING TO INSTALL IT ON MY LAPTOP AND CREATE A NETWORK BETWEEN MY DESKTOP MY LAPTOP. WHEN I TRY TO "MAP THE NETWORK DRIVE" A WINDOW (SECURITY WINDOW) APPEARS REQUESTING A PASSWORD FOR MY COMPUTER. I HAVE TRIED EVERY PASSWORD KNOWN TO MAN OR TO ME ANYWAYS, AND NOTHING HAS WORKED. ANY AND ALL HELP IS GRATEFULLY APPRECIATED.

    Do you Have a Computer Login Passoword? Your Computer Password might work!

    Have you Tried the admin Password? Admin Password might Work!

    Go to Network and Sharing Center and click on the Advance sharing there you'll find "Password Protected Sharing" you could turn that off and enable public sharing as well. Then you won't get that prompt.
