Have you ever dread with this problem? Just today one of my co-employee called me because she cannot print on a printer hosted by a Windows 10 machine. This is likely going to happen if you are connecting to a non-server type computer like Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7 and even Windows XP.

This problem generally appears to computers that are hosting a shared drive, folder or printer.

The Problem
Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7 and even Windows XP can only accept 10 concurrent connections which is a limitation to a non server operating system other than the Microsoft Windows Servers.

I tried to make it to 15 instead of 10 and it worked. I do not know if it is going to work if you make it to more than 15. I have this tested on a Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 10.

The Fix
Here's how to fix this problem

  1. Click START -> RUN (for Windows XP), for Windows 10 right click Start menu then select Run, in Windows 7 just type "Regedit" in the search bar.
  2. Type regedit
  3. Go to \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
  4. Look for cachedlogonscount
  5. You should see a value that is equal to 10 in Windows XP, 7 and 10. Replace its value to your desired number of connection. I used 15 for this tutorial.
  6. Restart your computer to make sure it will take effect.

That's it, it is done.
