  1. Cannot access Windows 95 shared folder from Windows 10


    Hi folks!

    I am experiencing a weird problem with an old PC, controlling an instrument in the lab, which runs Windows 95.

    I set up a shared folder to collect data from the instruments (without relying on floppy disks for that).

    Curiously, my PC (running Windows 10) cannot access the shared folder (no credentials asked, I get error 0x80004005) BUT another PC also with Windows 10 can. I don't see the PC listed in the network but I can access it by looking for \\PC-name and the shared folder shows up.

    This brings me to think that the Win 95 share is setup correctly.

    I was wondering why I can access it from one PC and not from another one in the same network.

    Is there any specific Windows 10 setting that may prevent access to that shared folder?

    :)

    Map Windows 7 Shared Folder to Win 95

    I am able to map the folder shared by the Windows 7 machine on my XP Pro machine without problem.
    I cannot get the Windows 95 machine to map the folder shared by the Windows 7 machine.
    The Windows 95 machine will map a drive shared by an XP machine just fine.

    Map Windows 7 Shared Folder to Win 95

    Okay .. I figured it all out.

    Configuring Windows 95 so it can map Windows 7 shared folders.

    You need to update Windows 95 so that it can utilitze NTLMv2 network protocols (and use 128 bit encryption for authentification).
    Nothing needs to be done on the Windows 7 machine other than sharing a drive or folder.

    On the Windows 95 Machine you will need a local account with the same name and password as on the Win7 machine or in the domain.
    The Windows 95 computer does not have to be a member computer in the domain (ie. does not need domain authentification)

    1) Install the Distributed File System client for Windows 95 (dfs41w95.exe)
    2) Install WinSock 2.0 (w95ws2setup.exe)
    3) Install Microsoft Dial-Up Network 1.3 (MSDUN13.exe)
    (I wasn't sure what msdun13 does to the TCP/IP stack so I reinstalled winsock2.0 again)
    4) Install Internet Explorer 4.01 SP2 / 32 bit (ie40sp2.exe ... you need this or step #6 will termintate without installing)
    5) Install Microsoft Installer 2.0 (InstMsiA.exe .. you need this so Windows 95 knows what to do with the .msi file in the next step)
    6) Install Distributed Services Client for Windows 9x (dsclient9x.msi)
    7) Go into the registry editor (regedit) and go to ...
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control
    Create a Key named Lsa
    Create a DWORD in Lsa named LMCompatilbility with a hex value of "3".
    8) Reboot once more.

    Mapping a network drive on a Windows 7 machine should now work.

    Cannot access Windows 95 shared folder from Windows 10

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
