Map Network Drive Coding Options?

Q. Which is the most reliable way to map a network drive on either local or remote drive?

I generally use the Process class and run the Net Use command. I think this can also be accomplished within c# using Netsh or Powershell, etc...

Maybe I'm not reading the post correctly. Isn't WNetAddConnection2 what I suggested?

I can manually Map the network drive share using the built-in Windows 7 'Add network share' window. This is what I'm looking to do, except programmatically.
Maybe I don't understand what you are asking then. From what you described, that is exactly what WNetAddConnection2 is for.
I'm currently trying these suggestions. There is also a WNetAddConnection3.
