Windows cannot access \\testpc
Error Code: 0x800704cf

If your system is a workstation joined with local domain and you are getting above (same) error while trying to access ANY shared resource/system on the network, then you may try following fix. This error gave me straight 1-2 hour headache, so I really don’t want anyone else to bang their head on the wall for the same.


Fix #1

  • Open (Currently active) Network Adapter properties,
  • UNCHECK the ‘Client for Microsoft Networks‘  / OK
  • Open Regedit, & Navigate to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters”
  • Create a new key with following parameters

Type: DWORD Value
Name: SMBDeviceEnabled
Data: 1

  • Once Done, Restart your computer, & then MAKE SURE TO ENABLE THE ‘CLIENT FOR MICROSOFT NETWORK’ in the adapter settings.

Now check and hopefully you will be able to access the shared resources without any error.


Fix #2

Uninstall File & Print Sharing Service, Restart PC, re-install the service again, Restart your PC, & check. This solved the error too in some of my domain workstation runnign windows 7 64bit.


 

TIP/Additional Commands

  • ipconfig /flushdns
  • nbtstat -RR
  • netsh int ip reset
  • netsh winsock reset
