Publishing "My computer" with IE7 on Presentation Server 4.5 unable to map network drives

Hi,

I have Citrix presentation server 4.5 with latest hotfix installed. The server has internet explorer 6 on it and I have published several applications including "My computer" using Iexplorer.exe.

When users access "My computer" from web interface, it will have couple of network shares mapped as a drive by VB script. This thing works fine in current environment.

However, I need to upgrade Internet Explorer to version 8 and when I tried it, the "My computer" application would stop mapping drives. It will just display local server drives to end user.

Can I get help with publishing IE7 or IE8 as "My computer" application and mapping drives successfully.

Thanks,
dd

I'd say its the security features of IE stopping the VB script from running.. Its sort of makes sense..

What I'd do is see if you can add the scripts "file" location to the trusted zone or somehow turn down the IE settings to allow the VB script to execute..

You create a batch file called MyComputer.bat and publish it.

MyComputer.bat
echo off
cls
net use x: /delete /y
net use y: /delete /y
net use z: /delete /y

net use x: \\server1\share /persistent:no
net use y: \\server2\share /persistent:no
net use z: \\server3\share /persistent:no

C:\Windows\explorer.exe /n,/e,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

:end of batch file

try that and see if this will work for you
