Hello,

I hava a function in VB.NET that returns all the computer names on a network. What I need to accomplish now is to find out if a selected computer has a folder called 'V2K' and they have a System32 folder in there admin folder(WINNT). I this is so, the function should return TRUE.

This is the C# version of your function

private bool VerifyDir(string nomePc)
{
      if (System.IO.Directory.Exists(@"\\" + nomePc + "\v2k") && System.IO.Directory.Exists(@"\\" + nomePc + "\winnt\system32"))
            return true;
      else
            return false;
}

The bottlecheck could be the net ....
I suggest you to verify for one or two computers and then increase the number of computers for testing the response of the net.

Do you have tried with another pc? Try, before of all, with explorer (I suggest you to find it digiting the name)

I'm sorry, but if a pc doesn't shred his folders, you have nothing hope to see them.

I'm sorry, if a pc doesn't share his folders, it is impossible for everyone (included the netword Administrator) see them.
If you are not sure that your client share them folders you must look for a different solution.

If you have admin rights, the computer has a hidden share C$ that is available.
