my Company bought some technician licenses for of the Profile Wizard a couple of weeks ago and i've been testing it on the same computer and a remote computer before doing a remote migration via script. 

Im currently testing with two VMs on the same network, both in Workgroups, both local admins, firewall disabled and network and sharing activated as well as network discovery.

I can see both computers on the network 

but when i choose the computer i want to migrate, i get prompted to input the domain (so the computer name) with the local Admin user and password, but when i confirm it, it just pops up again blank and nothing happens. 

I had the same problem last week but after re-enabling the firework, it at least gave me an error that i could later fix with editing the registry with another tip i found here (but cant find anymore)

any idea what is going on here?

We answered your support ticket, but to help others, please find our reply below; 

User Profile Wizard only uses standard Microsoft File and Printer sharing. File and Printer Sharing must already be enabled and the machines must be discoverable. To troubleshoot, try typing \\Computername\C$ from Start/Run from another machine and see if it will connect.
Remember that by default, Windows 7 onwards prevents local accounts from accessing administrative shares through the network. To enable administrative shares you have to make a registry change on the target machine. Run Regedit and add the following registry value:
Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Name: LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy
Data Type: REG_DWORD (32-bit)
Value: 1

Many thanks,
