Hi,

I need to be able toautomatically map to a network drive using c# that includes user name and password. I'm currently using a batch file using NetUse but my customer doesn't like this solution even though it works fine.

Hi,
you can use this:


private void Mapping_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            MapNetDrive("X", @"\\192.168.0.112\vmware", "bounty", "pass");
         }

private void MapNetDrive(string driveChar, string server, string user, string password)
        
        {
            try
            {
                string path = string.Format("use {0}: {1} /user:{2} {3}", driveChar, server, user, password);
                Process proc = new Process();
                proc.StartInfo.FileName = "net";
                proc.StartInfo.Arguments = path;
                proc.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
                proc.Start();
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                               MessageBox.Show(e.ToString());
             }
        }
