Suddenly I could no longer play content. The only thing that’s changed is I ran Win10 updates.
So I deleted the share and tried reconnecting again. It says my username and password combination isnt right (it is right).
So I changed the SMB setting from Auto to Legacy and it says:
An error occured.
Sorry, infuse encountered an error while trying to connect
Deleted the app and reinstalled it. No go.
This behavior seems to occur when using a Microsoft Account vs a local account for the login. It’s not an elegant solution, but making a local account, giving that account access to the shared folders solves the problem.
You may first want to try what this post recommends
Before you re-install, you may just try walking through the steps to enable File Sharing on your PC.
There have been at least a few Windows updates which have caused File Sharing to become disabled, which would prevent apps like Infuse from being able to connect.
Also check to ensure the username/password you’re putting in Infuse is correct. Anonymous (guest) access gets a little weird with SMB.
If that doesn’t get you going then try what Grymmy suggested. Seems that I’ve read that too can help in certain circumstances.
I checked File sharing settings. That was all fine. Even enabled SMB in Windows Components.
Then I created a new account. It then appeared as an ‘Available Share’
Now I see three Shares.
One is my computers IP address
Second is the share I manually added
Third is My Computers hostname:Microsoft account name
Anyway I suppose it’s fixed now!
