Access to resource [mapped drive] has been disallowed.

I have set up a 2003 server. Everything seems to be working wonderfully except one issue.
I have shared a drive (w:) on the server and I have mapped it locally.
I can browse to the drive (through My Computer\w:\etc) but I cannot open this up in explorer by letter (ie. start>Run>w:). I get message "Access to the resource 'W:' has been disallowed.
I believe this is giving me issues with a piece of software that requires "network drive access" and maps to this resource complaining that it cannot access the resource.
This machine has had some group policies changed to secure "Terminal Services" and I expect this is the issue, but I can't where any access to mapped drives has been disallowed.

Anyone?

Please note that the mapped drive "W:\" is a share on this computer, so it is mapping a drive to a local share..

Remember that in 2003 the shares are locked down by default - check the folder and SHARE permissions.

Indeed. The folder to which the drive is mapped {c:\SME} is has system and Administrator with full access. In the share, I have share for read/write for Administrator and at this point added "everyone" with full perms.

*** NOTE***
I have now noticed that I cannot open any drive from explorer including the C:\ (system) drive. I can browse through "My Computer" as previously noted but I cannot open "My Computer" and type in "C:\windows" in the address field. Again it complains of with the error ""Access to the resource 'W:' has been disallowed." No error is written into the event log.

Look to see if remove the NoRun policy restriction is enabled.
1. do you have the run cmd?
2.Check
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer registry
are set to 0

You got the right one baby! Uh-huh!
Thank you very much. Although it did not help my software installation, It did answer my question and force the software company to take a stronger look @ the situation.
Thank you very much.
