In order to allow Enterprise Console to perform automatic installation of Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows 2000+ on Windows XP Professional computers in a workgroup, Simple File Sharing must be disabled on the computers involved.
Disable Simple File Sharing. There is no need to uninstall and reinstall.
Disabling Simple File Sharing enables you to define access for individual shares. This gives greater security than Simple File Sharing, but can be more complex to configure. If, for some reason, it is necessary for you to retain the use of Simple File Sharing, you can install computers manually as described in the Startup guide (Protect computers with manual installation).
