Networking Windows Vista Home Premium to Mac

I experienced a difficulty to connect my laptop running Vista Home Premium to a Mac running OSX. Both machines are in the same workgroup and seeing each other, but can’t login even though I have correct login information. Error: Windows suggests to check user name and password.

Change the key LmCompatibilityLevel from “3” to “1”.
