Hello,

I have a user upgrading from Windows XP Pro in a domain in which we use log in scripts to map shared resources.

The shares were mapping fine with Windows XP Pro but i have upgraded the user to Windows 8 and now nothing is mapping.

How do I get Windows 8 to pull the shared resources?

Thanks

consider using Group Policy Preferneces Drive Mappings as an alternative to a logon script.

hello,

I have installed the update "KB2795944." Still doesn't seem to have worked?

As background information, the user now has to log on with a Live account being that the PC is Windows 8. How does this then link to our domain?

Thanks

I think therefore the issue is that he should be logging I to the domain.
