Windows 7 net use mapping error
Posted on 2011-03-04
Good Day to all,
I am new to Windows 7 and we are deploying our first Windows 7 box. The problem is a dos script that our accounting dept uses to connect to a server share will not work in Windows 7. Now the issue is two part. 1. It works in XP on multiple pc's. 2. It is a very simple script using net use. Here is the script:
NET USE H: /DELETE
NET USE H: \\IP_ADRESS\QDLS\sharename /USER:USERNAME PASSWORD
When I run it I get a System Error 5 Access is denied.
I have tried running this using the Run as administrator command with the same results.
I even tried logging in as the domain admin and using run as administrator.
Additional notes. If I open my computer and use the Map Network Drive option I can map to the share. If I right click on it and choose disconnect and then run the script using run as administrator it works. I know it is probably something easy. But I really need to get this to work I don't know what is so different in the way that Windows 7 is running this script but any help would be greatly appreciated
