    Zuu,

    What does the PC that you cannot share files from have installed on it? Is it Windows RT or Windows RT 8.1 by chance?

    If I'm not wrong it is Windows RT

    Ah, that would be why then.

    In Windows RT and Windows RT 8.1, you can join a homegroup, but you can’t create a homegroup or share content with the homegroup.

    Ahh ok didn't know we were working with RT.

    The following link may help with the sharing of content on the Windows 8 RT device.

    I'm not so sure about Library's and sharing with the other Homegroup machines as I haven't tested with RT yet but the link shows how to turn on printer and folder sharing through the local server services which may help if there is a problem with sharing.

    If you are having problems accessing the Library folders when the Windows 7 or 8 machines are in a Homegroup it may help to use the Homegroup sharing settings to right click the Library you want to share, choose specific people then use the Add button to allow sharing with Everyone per the picture below.
