Scriptable alternative to using net use in HKLM\....\run to add credentials to machine on the network to a system

I have a file server to which whenever I try to open a folder, I get a dialog for a user name and password.
I can bypass it if from the command prompt when I run net use . However, I have tried putting net use in the the registry startup, but this does not work due to the fact that this runs before all other network services are started.
I know about keymgr.dll, but this is not a viable solution for me because it forces me to interact via the GUI and I need a scriptable way to do this.
I am able to use advapi32.dll to open the destination with credentials, from a small c# program but unfortunately, they do not persist outside of the program as I had hoped they might.
Any solutions/ideas are welcome.
Note -- I know that a way to get rid of the pw prompt all together is to put the server in guest only mode, but that is not an option for me.

Thanks in advance
