    Homegroup password not accepted


    New Windows8Pro x86 upgrade from Win7 Pro saving all settings.

    Homegroup is no longer joined with other Win7Pro computer

    Attempted to join Homegroup via Win8 settings- password not accepted

    I KNOW the password is correct - I know it is case sensitive

    Any suggestions?

    In order to fix this type of problem you should leave the Homegroup from all Homegroup machines in your network then create a new Homegroup and rejoin from all machines. Most other Homegroup problems can be fixed by using the trouble shooter in the link below.
