MS Office 2010 - Mapped drives

Hi Experts,

I have Windows 2008

I can see the mapped drives in windows explorer.

But when I go into MS Access 2010 I do not see any mapped drives

Please help and thanks

Ok so I think I used UAC correctly?

I went into the link provided
I used the net use command

Using Cmd Prompt>right click>run as administrator

Then I just typed in:
Net Use <enter>
and within the cmd prompt window I could see all mapped drives.


So I went back into MS Access:
Now I can see all mapped drives in Access when I open.

Like it is mentioned: "hmm, weird. "

Thanks

What is the SQL Server part of your question?

Do you run MS Access under the same user account as Windows Explorer?

Do you mean Windows Server 2008 (R2 or not?)? Or do you mean Windows 8?

I am sorry,

I have 2008 R2

I run MS Access under the same sign On (account)

This is only for MS Access, I do not see any mapped drives the only drives I see: C and D
I just looked at Word, Excel and all mapped drives are there.

I have Windows 8.1

I can see the mapped drives in
windows explorer
Word
Excel

But

In Access when I try: Open Window does not show the mapped drives.

I also checked "Process Explorer" and found that Integrity is "high"

Please help and thanks

I see.

You're sure about the same account? Maybe it's UAC.
