Scripted mapped drives not showing up within Vista Business

Drives are being mapped through a logon script between a Vista Business workstation and a Windows 2003 Server.  The mapped drives show in My Computer, however in some applications they do NOT show up when browsing.  However, if a drive is mapped MANUALLY, it does show up when browsing within the application.  Why would the scripted mapped drives not show when browsing within an app?

Thanks!

This is a reported issue within Vista - I've only seen it manifest when the end-user is a local admin on their workstation thus far, I believe a normal user doesn't run into it.  See the following thread for a potential workaround: http://www.developersdex.com/asp/message.asp?p=593&r=5431945&page=2

(Read the whole thread, there are some sample scripts towards the bottom that might help you differentiate between your XP and Vista clients.)

Hope this helps.
