"View or print the homegroup password" nothing happens.

I am trying to connect two computers windows 7 (a 64 bit the other 32 bit) using homegroup.  When I try to make the connection to be asked a password, I know ever created.  When I press "View or print the homegroup password" nothing happens. I followed the many threads on this topic and have not found a solution that I can understand. Please explain what to do for a novice in computer science.  Is is possible to connect computers through the network without using the homegroup?  I have a third computer that the operating system is Windows XP.  Thank you.

Here's what worked for me.

Go to the folder C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking

Remove or rename the idstore file. Click to display the password. This folder is hidden, so you may need to show hidden folders
