Webdrive unable to map drives since upgrading to Windows 7 RC from Beta.

I receive this error:

WebDrive
can't map network drive: (1204) The specified network provider name is invalid.

It was working with Windows 7 Beta, I upgraded to the RC version a few days ago,
and now I receive the error whenever I use WebDrive. (http://www.webdrive.com/products/webdrive/index.html)

I have uninstalled, reinstalled, tried compatibility troubleshooter (ran as administrator, xp compatibility mode)

My system:
AMD Athlon 3200,3Gb Ram, Windows 7 Ultimate RC.

Misc. Info:
By upgrading, I mean I edited the cversion.ini file in the sources folder of the RC iso
which allowed an upgrade. (Changed the MinClient= line to 7000.0)

After re-reading what I just said, I'll also add that Windows supports that natively. Click "Map network drive" and then the link displayed.

Since version 7000 was buggy, it's probably a good idea to do a clean install to the RC - 7100. I've seen it mentioned a few times on here and it does the trick.

I will say, though, that WebDisk doesn't ever seem to work on this or Vista anyway. The FTP method works much better, if supported.

I tried the native mapping, and it is not at all convenient for what I do.

I am looking for a solution, not an alternative, as the Webdrive application does exactly what I need.

I can quickly connect to one of my customer's web accounts (I have 40 or 50 that I connect to a couple
of times a month) I don't want to have dozens of mapped drives all the time, and I don't want to have to
log in manually each time. I just right click my Webdrive icon, connect and disconnect as needed.

Thank you for the response, qdude2002, but it doesn't fix my issue.

This has worked for some users:

- Click Start
- Click Control Panel
- Click System and Maintenance
- Click Administrative Tools
- Double-Click Local Security Policy
- In the left pane, click the triangle next to Local Policy
- In the left pane, click Security Options
- In the right pane near the bottom, double-click "Network security: LAN
manager authentication level"
- Click the drop-down box, and click "Send LM & NTLM responses"
- Click OK

Hope this helps.

What service are you connecting to? Is it FTP, WebDAV, or something else?

As I understand it, this is a piece of software that you have to buy. Have you tried talking to their own support?

I wasn't able to fix this issue, but I have begun using the Network Location option which is annoying but get the job done. (I have to copy the file to my local drive, edit it, and copy it back up. When doing multiple revisions to multiple files, this can prove tedious.)
