Hi all,

I'm working on a dll and I need to map a network drive.
The problem is that the dll runs under an accout that seems not to have the permissions to map a network disk.

How can I change the dll credentials?
Help pls.

Perhaps this article will help:

You need to impersonate another user to create the map. So, if you use his class to do the impersonation, you would do something like:

ImpersonateUser.Impersonate(..);
...
Do the mapping here
...
ImpersonateUser.Undo()

Thanks.
