personally, i think WNetAddConnection() is the right method to implement the function. here are some cues:

1) on the runtime machine, can you successfully map a network drive by manual operation? if it is not, please make sure all the related components and services should be running well for this operation, such as "client of MS network", "file and printer sharing for MS network", "workstation" and "server" services, NETBIOS over TCPIP etc.

2) have you noticed that WNetAddConnection() function is provided only for compatibility with 16-bit versions of Windows. Other Windows-based applications should call the WNetAddConnection2 or the WNetAddConnection3 function?

3) after calling the WNetAddConnection(), what is the Return Values? have you check the return value for error codes? MSDN gives the complete table of the error codes.

moreover, please also make sure that the following header file, library and character-set are correct.

  Header: Declared in Winnetwk.h.
  Library: Use Mpr.lib.
  Unicode: Implemented as Unicode and ANSI versions on Windows NT/2000/XP. Also supported by Microsoft Layer for Unicode.

hope it helps,
