I am trying to create a local share of a directory on a dedicated Windows 2003 server that I'm renting, but when I type the command "net share ..." I get the following error:
"The service name is invalid."
The detailed error message says "You tried to start a service that is not configured on this sytem."
Why would basic net share functionality be disabled on my machine? Is there a service I need to start? Is there another way to create a local share? (That is, I need to create a directory that looks like a network share to an application on this same machine.)
