Windows 7 Share inaccessible from non-windows or old media player (PBO, PlayOn, ACRyan)

recently my windows 7 PC got the update and suddenly my media player unable to access video files stored in my PC, turned out now windows 7 is too secure for non-microsoft media player, or any old media player.

here is the remedy, change the windows 7 registry to allow old style authentication from other device.

open Regedit, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE  (HKLM)
  • in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa, create LmCompatibilityLevel = dword "1", and change NoLmHash from "0" to "1"
  • in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft create key Netlogon
  • in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Netlogon create key Paramaters
  • in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Netlogon\Paramaters create AllowNT4Crypto = dword "1"
  • in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Paramaters create AllowNT4Crypto = dword "1"
  • make sure in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Lanmanserver\Paramaters requiresecuritysignature already set to dword "0"

restart a PC, now window share is accessible again from old media player.

my media player is PBO from patriot, and run PlayonHD firmware from AC Ryan.
