Microsoft Windows Network Is Disabled

Updated February 27, 2019

Overview

The Microsoft Windows Network browser is not populating using Windows 10 version 1709 and later. It is a Microsoft implementation and Dameware Remote Support has nothing to do with it. Please check the workaround below for this scenario.

Environment

  • Microsoft Windows 10 version 1709

Cause 

SMBv1 is not installed by default in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and Windows Server, version 1709. It was superseded by SMBv2 and later protocols starting in 2007. Microsoft publicly deprecated the SMBv1 protocol in 2014.

Resolution

  1. Open the Windows Control Panel.
  2. Go to the Programs & Features.
  3. Click the Turn Windows features on or off. 
  4. In the list of options, locate SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support.
  5. Check the checkbox associated with it and press OK.
