I have a Windows 2003 server with Windows XP clients that are able to browse the network normally.
Windows 8 is unable to browse the network unless one of the Windows XP computers is on and working as a backup browser. For some reason, it wont get a server list from the master browser and a "net view" command almost always returns "A
remote API error occurred." The Computer Browser service in Windows 8 will not run when the Windows 2003 master browser is running. Also, the Windows 2003 server is unable to get a server list from the Windows 8 browser, so it doesn't help
to disable the browser on the server.
I don't want to have to leave a Windows XP computer on all the time as a crutch for Windows 8 being broken.
