Visual Studio 2010 - DirectoryExists returning false positive

Hello,

Curious if anyone else has seen, heard, or knows the solution to the issue I am experiencing in Visual Studio 2010. I am running a Directory Exists test on a remote system and receiving false positives. For example I am running the following on a Windows 7 system:

If (my.computer.filesystem.directoryexists("\\MachineName\C$\Documents and Setting\UserID\Desktop")) Then

'Do what i want

End if

Although the system is Windows 7 and does not contain the directory "Documents and Settings" Visual Studio is returning a value of true indicating the Directory Exists.

Any ideas?

OMG! Why would Microsoft Toy with me like this? Had no idea that it still existed, i thought it was completely replaced by the Users folder.

I should have reached out to you sooner and saved days of staring blankly at my code.
