Nope, I'm using my live account in Windows 8 to sign in, and just a regular username on my other PC. I didn't get to test much last night, but I think disabling IPv6 in the Windows 8 network adapter settings might have fixed the issue. Not sure why this would matter as IPv6 is enabled in the Windows 7 manager and my connection goes through a switch that has IPv6 support (and I could ping the IPv6 address on both machines). Likewise, both remote desktop and VNC had no problems connecting to the other PC. Only trying to browse the network directories did it tell me "path not found".
I'll have to do more testing to verify that is the case, but I didn't seem to get anymore "path not found" errors after disabling it. For what it's worth, I tried both the PC name and the IPv4 address before when it was working sporadically.
