Solved How to Set Up Laptop on Already Configured Workgroup Network

March 6, 2012 at 08:43:10
Specs: Windows XP/2008
We have a network based from a server where data is stored, such as Quickbooks files, and an employee has a laptop instead of a workspace. He needs to be able to access the Quickbooks file from his computer- we are currently using Remote Desktop Connection, however it is proving to be quite complicated for him (patience does not come naturally, let's just say...) and I need to know how to set it up. I know how to set up Quickbooks and all- the issue is with adding his laptop to the workgroup. Can someone please break these steps down as finite as possible, please?

Laptop is Windows 7 OS, NOT XP

Thank you in advance!

No, I'm sorry if I made that unclear. The laptop is connecting to Quickbooks on the network server via RDP. The server as well as all other workstations have Quickbooks directly installed on their systems, and are not using RDP. What I need is to take the laptop off of the RDP connection to the server and have it added to the workgroup network like all other workstations, then install QB directly on it.
