Newly Connected Sever Will Not Share ACT 2012 Data?

We have a new "server"--running Windows 7 Professional.  No security software except for MSE.  No firewall except basic Microsoft one.  We have a new workstation running Windows XP Professional--again, same, MSE and firewall.  We have setup ACT on the "server" and shared it.  We try to open the PAD file (with new server name) on the workstation and it says it is not shared.  This is not a complicated network setup--just a UVerse router and switch--and it worked on a previous setup--both computers had to be reloaded.  We have checked SQL, protocols, server paths, everything.  This shouldn't be this hard on a small network with two NEW computers.  Advise?

Create a new folder in the root of the C: drive on the Windows 7 PC (ie. Actshare) and put the ACT! database in there and share it.  Windows 7 has some complex folder sharing scenarios if you try and use the default.
