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.

you can use this:

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

private void MapNetDrive(string driveChar, string server, string user, string password)
                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;
            catch (Exception e)
