    I am trying to share the library that is on my 2008 MBP with my Windows Vista desktop computer, but it's not working. The Vista machine is connected by an ethernet cable to my router and my MBP is connected via wifi. Every time I open iTunes on both machines, the MBP's library shows up under the "shared" column like it should, but when I click on it (when I'm on my Vista machine), it immediately reverts to the Vista's library name and loads the contents of the library on that machine, not the MBP like it should. The iTunes library on my Vista desktop is empty and I am trying to transfer my iTunes library that is on the MBP to my Vista desktop.

    Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong? I have the MBP set to "share my library" and the Vista desktop set to "look for shared libraries."
