XBMC share keeps coming with networkusername and password - Possible01 - 2012-02-27 00:24
This afternoon my XBMC Live Dharma crashed. So was searching for a newer version for XBMC and installed XBMCUbuntu EDEN beta 2. Everything is working great so far excerpt network shares.
My laptop has Windows 7 + SP1 installed. When I want to connect to the XBMC share, it keeps asking for a username and a networkpassword. This problem did not occure with the Dharma Xbmc live installation.
Does anyone know how to fix it?
I did a clean Windows 7 install but it still prompt up with a username and a password.

I've always had this problem (even after going through great lengths to try and get rid of it - from making sure Windows 7 has password sharing disabled to removing the password on the user accounts on my windows 7 computer) and the only fix I found was to use the username/password you normally use to login to your Windows7 computer, and select the "Remember these credentials for this share" or something along those lines. It hasn't asked for anything since.

Edit the paths to your network shares to include the user and pass......

But what user and password i have to fill in? My Windows 7 machine is not password protected. And like I said, with the previos buiild (Dharma) i didnt had this problem.
I also disabled the settings for password protected shares in Windows 7 but dit didnt worked out.

In Windows a share with "everyone" even when not password protected is only shared with people that have a user set up on that machine. Make sure that whatever user is on logged in on the client computer has a user account on the server.

Oke i created an account for my windows 7 computer with a password, but the problem is not solved.
Any other ideas?

It's the user name and password you setup when you installed XBMCbuntu.

on the windows side in the shared folder options do you have "everyone" in the share group?

i had this problem as well, i put in the windows machine\username and password
So my box is called core_i7 and the username is xbmc
so you put this in the username "core_i7\xbmc"
