Hi,

I have a hidden share on my system, lets call it \\Server\share$. I have an accounting program that calls this share. I have a problem with Crystal Reports where it only likes the drive name of the device, rather than the UNC name. I don't know how to give Crystal Reports access to the UNC name. Is there a way to have mapped drive thats hidden? Or maybe a workaround for this?
