Where do I fix connection sharing for programs?
In my attempts to find a problem I have in the desktop version of Quickbooks, I ran the database manager device and it says "Windows firewall: connection sharing not allowed" and "Network Diagnostics:" Failed, Resolve and retry" It appears I cannot locate anything to change in Window settings under the firewall, diagnostics etc. Does anyone know what this is or where I can locate it in my Windows 10 PC? I had no issues sharing the network for Quickbooks then all of the sudden I can not be on the network program at the same time as another user. I have 2 licenses for QB's so I am lost.

For those who are having internet issues with Windows store
I managed to fix the internet, "Where internet works as connected when you use your browser, but doesn't work when you use Windows Store, it's apps, or settings to sync your account". Microsoft has a driver called Virtual Miniport Adapter, or sounds similar to that, I disabled that driver along with any vpns, and virtual machine network adapters, that fixed the problem. Sometimes my system may start with these drivers hidden and causes my network adapter to do that, but your issue is that your network adapter is connected to your internet. It's an issue with Microsoft's Direct Virtual WiFi driver. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AvgJw57iE8PBgZoIDW1xit3UtTY8hw
