I wonder if you have a batch file or an executable called "net" that is interfering with the built-in NET command in DOS.

Try directly running the net command using the full path and see if the error goes away:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\net.exe

No this did not work see below :


C:\>c:\windows\system32\net.exe
The syntax of this command is:


NET [ ACCOUNTS | COMPUTER | CONFIG | CONTINUE | FILE | GROUP | HELP |
      HELPMSG | LOCALGROUP | NAME | PAUSE | PRINT | SEND | SESSION |
      SHARE | START | STATISTICS | STOP | TIME | USE | USER | VIEW ]


C:\>c:\windows\system32\net.exe net use
The syntax of this command is:


NET USE
[devicename | *] [\\computername\sharename[\volume] [password | *]]
        [/USER:[domainname\]username]
        [/USER:[dotted domain name\]username]
        [/USER:[username@dotted domain name]
        [/SMARTCARD]
        [/SAVECRED]
        [[/DELETE] | [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]]

NET USE {devicename | *} [password | *] /HOME

NET USE [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]



C:\>net use
System error 1734 has occurred.

The array bounds are invalid.

There is a Microsoft Hotfix for this:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=2454533

The problem was apparently caused by this update:

KB980802

Uninstalling KB980802 fixed the problem for some people but the Hotfix covers it.

Hello again.  I guess "no news is good news" doesn't apply here.  Sorry to hear it.

I have not found any other suggestions regarding this error.  The message often seems connected to Microsoft's Visual Studio.  Do you have Visual Studio on that PC, even if it is not running?

Maybe you should make a "Request for Attention" to see if anyone else has an idea.

Like I said, I don't have the answer, but my thoughts are this:

One of the entries that NET USE is trying to display must be upsetting it.  NET USE shows the list of mapped network drives.  Do you have any mapped network drives?

Open Windows Explorer, and go to Tools/Disconnect Network Drive.  See anything unusual?  If you feel like it, you could disconnect any drives you see there and then test if the NET USE command works when there are no mapped drives.  Of course, after this test, you'll have to set up your mapped drives again, so it might be a pain to try out.  But it may work.

awesome you were right. Went through 1 by 1 and a mapped drive was causing the error. Thanks
