Installing software on Windows 7 doesn't give network drives

Hi All,


I've been asked to install a program on several Windows 7 Professional computers.

During the install process on my Windows 7 machine I get the option to select the files from a network drive.  However when I install it on another Windows 7 PC it doesn't.

I've tried logging on as me on both machines and get the same results.

The program is QPulse v4.2

*note the install process asks for a network map.

Any suggestions?

Try the following:

open regedit and locate the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Policies/System

Create a new DWORD entry with the name "EnableLinkedConnections" and set the value to 1

Restart and try again

Do you have network discovery enabled on the other Windows 7 PC?
