    Like many other people on this forum, I have been unable to set up Air Share. When ever I tried to set up the network location I would this message.

    Ok so here is how you set up air share on vista

    Tip: for this to work your ipod must have Air Share open and on the screen where you see the Public and Samples folder.

    1. open up my computer and right click on the white area
    2. Click "Add a network location" from the drop down list
    3. Click on "Choose a custom network location"
    Now here is the part that people are getting the error
    4. type in the ip address or bonjour address that airshare gives you
    If you get the error, go here- http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=17C36612-632E-4C04-9382-987622ED1D64&displaylang=en and download the Windows software update for web folders.​
    It is a really fast download (It was fast for me and I use satellite...)
    now just try to set up the network location again and it should work
    Note: if it still does not work just try reputing in the address a few times and it will work, it took two more times for me using the bonjour address.(copy and past is your friend)​
    5. Then just name it whatever you want.

    Please post if it works for you too, or if you are experiencing any problems

    When I first tried setting it up, I used the bonjour Ip and didnt work so I just used the other one and worked fine.

    I'm kinda bringing up an oldish thread, but I still haven't had any luck connecting it.
