  2. Specified network name is no longer available

    I have 8 pcs network. 5 pc windows 10 installed, 1pc windows 8.1 installed and 2 pcs installed with windows xp.

    Recently I have some problem in one windows 10 pc named as server.The pc is shared with all drives.

    The pc acts as a server for only sharing a excel sheet.I had Reset the pc as the pc is giving lot of errors.

    after resetting the pc the server cannot accessible from windows xp pc but I can access the server pc from all windows 10 and windows 8.1 pc.

    Before resetting the pc the server is accessible from all pcs.

    The server pc not installed antivirus and windows firewall also is off .

    I can ping from windows xp pc to server pc but when access from windows xp pc with name or ip the above error is coming.

    When I access the pc from windows xp network places the error is the server is not accessible, you may not have permission to use the network resource.

    I had already shared all drives and they are accessed from windows 10 pc but windows xp pc cannot access this share

    Thanking you,

  3. Windows 10 and Photoshop problemCannot create the specified file. The file name is invalid or you do not have the permission to save to the specified directory.

    Photoshop Elements 9 gives the message:

    Cannot create the specified file. The file name is invalid or you do not have the permission to save to the specified directory.

    How can I solve this?

    The specified network provider name is invalid

    Really cannot tell what those small thumbnails say.

    If it is from the update that caused protocols to go missing. That is because Microsoft locked down Guest sessions for networking in 10.

    There is a Tutorial on here how to fix the problem, along with a very long thread.

    Yes, but on a iPhone, Taptalk does not render them properly, so they come out all blurred.

    That is why I posted that. It was not so much for them. It is the fact that the board software and Taptalk do not like each other for some reason.
