Win XP SP3 PC not displayed in Windows 7 network diagram but accessible. Why?

"I've got a new Windows 7 PC added to my LAN.
I have two Windows XP (SP3) PCs connected to it also and one of them is visible but when I go into:
Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network Map that XP machine is listed as ""discovered device(s) could not be placed on map."

The Windows XP machine that doesn't show up had Simple Network Sharing enabled. Turned that off, restarted it and now it shows up.
