I'm getting error 0x80004005 when trying to access a network share in Windows 7. The network share was created from a Windows 7 computer and is being accessed by a Windows 7 computer. The same exact configuration worked properly a month ago and for whatever reason doesn't work anymore.
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicyand setting the value to
6to4adapters in Device Manager
\\localhostfor the share - the share does appear and I can access files
How can I access this network share? Any help would be appreciated!
I had this problem in Windows 10, trying to access an open share (without username).
To fix it, you need to enable "AllowInsecureGuestAuth" in the registry under
You can check what it is on your system with
reg query HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters /v AllowInsecureGuestAuth
And you can set it to enable "AllowInsecureGuestAuth" with
reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters /v AllowInsecureGuestAuth /t REG_DWORD /d 1
You need to do that in a Command Prompt or Powershell started as Admin (or "Run as Administrator")
