      Check which version of windows 7 is installed. RC candidates didnt work. Have to ask., Probably redundant. But has to be asked.

    start with this fix

    win + r > "gpedit.msc" > computer configuration > windows settings > security settings >security options> "Network Security : LAN manager Security Level" set to Send LM + NTLM responces

     

    On the Win 7 side. Should allow the directory share. I'm guessing you have the same workgrp name set already., just pointing it out.
