ActiveDirectory: "The network path was not found."

I asked this question in the Windows group -- maybe I should have asked it here.
Please check it out if you'd like the points! (and the 50 for this question).

    Maybe the user session you using don't have the right/accessiblity into the domain for that particular task?

    Are you using same id when testing the program? Say, a domain user/admin login, then test the programs using different PC of same domain?

    Depend on the domain/local policy, it also can be due to some overwriting of rights due to different policy.

    And active directory do have some dependencies on some components on that pc. I have no details on this.

    Again, you best check with your sysadmin. :P

    Hi Kelmen,

    Thanks for your response.
    I have confirmed the the user session has rights to into the domain, the program runs under that user.
    I have installed the active directory client components onto my PC, and can see the properties I'm looking for using the ActiveDirectoryUsersAndComputers console with the same login information that the program runs under.
    I fear that you're correct that I'll have to check with the sysadmin. It's a big company and it will take lots of time and headaches to get my questions answered by them, which is why I had hoped to avoid it.

    I have deleted my question in the Windows section due to lack of response -- I forgot to check this thread before doing so.
    I'm happy to accept your response here, however and awared the 50 points. Feel free to post back if you think that's unfair, I'll most likely be happy to adjust it!

    Thanks for your response,
