Can you enable the Admin Shares Drive$ in a workgroup

Posted: 03-12-2008, 03:14 PM

I had to put my laptop back to XP Pro for various network reasons and
would like to return to Vista. Is there a way to enable Administrative
shares on Vista Business in a work group network? I know that registry
editing will necessary. I need to see the Admin shares on XP Pro and Win
2000 machines and for them to see the Vista shares
