Mapped drives not showing up in various programs

Network mapped drives pushed out by group policy do not show up inside various programs.  All of the Microsoft products are not having the issue- some of my lesser programs are having a problem.  Its only happening to 1 computer so it works for other users. Has anyone seen this before and have an idea on what causes it?  and more importantly- how to fix- it?

I have done this so far:
To get windows to share the list of mapped drives between both, you need to make a registry change.

Drill down to this key:


Under that key create a DWORD value named:


And set it to 1

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When the mapped drives dissapeared from your "lesser programs" are they still visible in My Computer/Windows Explorer or all gone?

Can you try deleting all the network drives from command line using: net use /del *

Then restart the computer to let GPO remap all the drives again?

they show everywhere else

it looks like the solution up ahead worked after all. A co-worker of mine changed the settings on the programs to run In XPS SP2 mode- once I turned that off then the programs started working,

Original solution I posted that I tried- actually worked after turning off the compatibility mode set by a co-worker while she was trying to find solutions. After I undid those changes she made the solution I posted worked.
