I have run the netsh commands from the Win7 PC on the homenet.  This did not give access to the Win10 "Blackbird"  PC.  Is there another option in the apps etc to
allow acces to the Blackbird PC coming in from the LAN?

In the Spybot Beacon post above,  the Winkey+r solved most of the
long command string I could not type in straight and I had  renamed some things.
Using the correct format at Winkey+r eliminated many errors

I will practice with curson up/down

And to Spybot,  I'll load that on the sandbox PC which is Win10 not Win7-- sorry about
confusing things or being unclear.  Win7 is not a test PC but needs to exchange
files I may have to the Win10 experimental setup on my homenet.

When the LAN is turned back on, is there message for that to verify-- as when Blackbird shows Updates are turned off when it loads?

Using the netsh commands described earlier got the Win10 PC to recognize other
elements of the homenet.  I only had one other PC on to test.  Both folders opened successfully.

However I got the old error when trying to open Win10 PC net folder from the Win7 PC.
I have not run the netsh commands on this one yet.

Other peculiar element is the shared folder on Win10 PC got misnamed as C--- just c lower case no colon on some typo or command error I made.  Now that c is the only showing shared element which is all of the Win10 disk.  A real botch.  Reinstalling  Win10 will be done eventually and I know of no solution since folder renaming does not appear to be allowed.

I can take that to TenForums to pusue it.

   That catches me up for now.  I hope these details may be beneficial to other blackbird novices.  I did not know much about how the Winkey+r could function previously as an

Some success.  The command properly executed at Winkey+r when initiating with
CMD  space in the box which I omitted.  From there I could get through the directory tree to blackbird.exe and add space -l .  Command screen opens and displays Blackbird executed that Lan command.

After restarting and checking the workgroup (again)  and also checking the screen that asks about changes for personal use or business use--  again  (which never defaults to home use) I have the icon at my workgroup network for the Win10 PC but not other nodes on the net.

I will rerun the netsh commands previously described to see if that finds the other
network node which is on Win7.

Any other responses to solve this appreciated.

Maybe some progress on the error trapping for me.

I've used the Winkey+R and then find the the path to the blackbird.exe 

Then I add space, dash l (lowercase el)  [return]

Opens and runs Blackbird with no visible errors.  I did the restart requested.
I've now to see whether that has turned the LAN back on.

.....  no success.

I double checked my workgroup name and the HOMENET is not found.

If Winkey+R  actually executed, would it not say at a commandline prompt rather than
simply running the program and ignoring space 'el'?
