Hi wzm,

A possible solution is

make a netCommand.bat file

in which you define the command you want to execute

NET USE ....

and then place your netCommand.bat in the startup group, which are going to be executed at startup.

(I'm not sure but I guess that you can also add it in the autoexec.bat file)


Cheers!

I dont know what u mean tinchos. My NET USE is of course, already in a *.bat file. This is usual for MS-DOS codes.

The problem is ... NET USE for NON XP AND NT AND 2000 ; that's is 98 ; which i'm referring to; does not have that NET USE / PERSISTENT:YES feature.

What I need is just a replacement of this codes or a work around.

Pls Help

Thanks

That's correct, 98 never had a persistent.  We simply put the mounts (net use) in the logon scripts, which has the same affect as persistent since the logon script runs before the desktop is loaded.
