I know that windows did have something recently to disable really old insecure versions of SMB happening, so perhaps that has happened and kodi cant do anything now? I havent used my android box with kodi on it for ages but may get it out and try again sometime.







as long as Kodi is up to date it supports up to smbv3. 
However, I just had a play with a windows 10 box and kodi couldn't see it unless I specified to use smbv1 in kodi settings.


Once that was set I was straight in.

First, this image reflects what I was trying to say earlier about Windows Features in W7 This is a grab from the net.



As I said, my Windows Features box shows NO such mention of any form of SMB.


MS apparently disabled SMBv1 with a hotfix after the WannaCry exploit last year. I must have installed the fix.


But that doesn't explain whether or no SMBv2 and SMBv3 are in my system, or if they are, how can I tell?


Surely they'll depend upon an exe or two? Or some associated DLL's?
