Windows 7 Map Multiple Folders on the Same Computer

Is it possible to map to two different folders on a Windows 7 Pro computer at the same time?  I'm maping from a Windows XP SP3 computer.  I use VBScripts, so I'm not messing up the drive path or UserName/Password.  I am using the same user account each time.  I believe I even have the problem maping to the same computer from two different computers.

Yes, you should be able to do this.  You need to share the folder to the two (or more) users that are mapping the folder. Make sure also you are set up (all computers) to use userid and passwords for sharing and access. On XP, turn off Simple File Sharing. On Windows 7, I normally do not use the Sharing Wizard (which is for manual mapping).

Very good, under the "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings" I found "Password protected sharing" setting, and turned on the password protected sharing.  I was able to then map a 2nd folder at the same time on the Windows 7 computer from my Windows XP computer.
