Access denied attempting to access windows 7 administrative shares in a workgroup.

Getting Rid of the “Access Denied” Error Message

To solve this issue you need to make a small registry modification on the TARGET computer.

Use Regedit to add a dword value named LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy to the following key and set it to “1″
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Note: To revert to the original setting, change the LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy value to 0 (zero).

Next, try to access the administrative share on the remote machine. This time you should succeed
