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.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.
