Windows 8 SMB and VMC problem
Hello. I've faced a weird problem: while using windows8 pc to set up a share for opl, I've managed to do it without any problems: i can play games, it saves settings for games, i can create VMC bin's over SMB too. But when i try to save a game to VMC, saving either fails or game says that save complete, but .bin file stays empty.
What i tried:
- manipulating permissions until my nose bled (nothing helped, even full access permissions to Everyone).
- forcing W8 to use smb 1.0:
- setting per-file permissions for .bin files.
sc config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi
sc config mrxsmb20 start= disabled
- making network private
- turning off windows firewall
Nothing worked. I thought i was a opl bug, but then i shared same folder using ubuntu livecd and games saved without any problem. Magic.
PS2 is connected directly to PC. No router or anything.
Is there something i am missing in SMB setup? I suppose, if i can create VMC over SMB i should be able to modify it over SMB? But W8 doesn't think so.
