I'm using Windows 8 Pro and attempting to share (Advanced sharing) a folder on the network via a Windows Live account. I did the following but have not had luck:

1) Added the account (a @hotmail.com) under PC settings -> Users
2) Created a shared folder and added the @hotmail.com account in permissions (It shows it there as a SID)

Now, trying to browse to the folder from a Windows 7 Ultimate box, the @hotmail.com account and password are not accepted. From the same box I can use my Admin Windows 8 account alias however.

Any ideas?
