Have you read the intstructions at:

Please make sure that you've configured your computer
correctly as per the "Minimum Requirements".

To determine if the problem is with NetBIOS configuration or
with NetView, try issuing a "net view" command at the DOS
prompt. The syntax is:

C:\> net view \\

Replace the IP address with the remote computer you are
attempting to scan. Here are the results I get for a
computer on our network:

Shared resources at \\


Share name Type Used as Comment

shared Disk
The command completed successfully.

This command uses the same built-in Windows API's that
Rawlogic's NetView uses. If this DOS command doesn't work
for you, the problem is with your Network configuration.
Please post any error messages that you receive, after you've
verified that you can successfully ping the remote computer.
In addition, please indicate which version of Windows each
machine is running and give some details on how the two
computers are networked.

To ping a computer from the DOS prompt:

C:\> ping
