    This is my first post. I have performed exhaustive searches of both the internet and this forum but am still at a loss. I have the database MSSmallBusiness on my laptop. I installed BCM on my desktop PC today and updated to the same version as on the laptop. When i try to connect to the laptop database remotely from BCM on the PC, I receive the following error message:

    The computer, SMH-LAPTOP does not contain any shared Business Contact manager databases. Please confirm that a shared Business Contact manager database is stored on he computer

    I have followed all of the troubleshooting suggestions with no success. The database is shared properly and all firewall settings are configured for sharing. I previously accessed the same database from a different PC several years ago. Here is my current setup:

    PC

    Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

    Outlook 2010 32-bit

    BCM for Outlook 2010 32-bit

    Laptop

    Windows Vista Business 32-bit

    Outlook 2010 32-bit

    BCM for Outlook 2010 32-bit

    I also uninstalled and reinstalled BCM on the laptop.

    Thank you for any and all assistance!

    I have followed all of the instructions in the articles above and am using Windows Firewall. Both computers use the same username and password and can see each other and their files on the network.
