Re: Problem Adding a Network Password

I just discovered that MCE won't allow cached credential as well. I
didn't notice for the past year, since I upgraded the first time.
Install MCE 2004 and then install MCE 2005 as an upgrade. Then you will
be able to cache credentials. I hope who ever took this feature out was
fired as this is a great way to have someone look at another media
player. Although I am sure the EU is happy.

From your original question, it sounds as if you've disabled
Simple File Sharing on your laptop. If you don't want to be
asked to provide credentials every time you try to access
resources on the laptop, you're going to have to create an
account on the laptop which is identical in user name and
password to the account you're using on your Windows XP Home

Good luck

There is no Add, only Remove and Properties (both greyed

(The reason I am trying to add an entry is to get access
to my XP Pro laptop across my wireless network without
being prompted every time.)
