Windows Service cannot access Shared Drive
Posted on 2004-08-30
I have a windows console app that accesses files on a mapped shared drive under a domain account on Windows XP. Now this console app is being called by a Windows Service and the shared drive is no longer accessible by the console app. "Allow service to interact with desktop" does not work because only the domain account has access to the shared drive and not the local system account. I have the source code for both the console app as well as the Windows Service. Is there a way I can make the service see the shared drive?
