Re: Map Network drive fails user & password

I found an answer and thought I would share it here, after all I had
searched about 20 fourms and not one touched on this simple task.
After trying uncessfully to map a network drive between to Vista
machines, I found this:

Go to your control panel, User Accounts and Family Safety, User
Accounts and click on "Turn User Account Control on or off"

Turn this off for all Vista machines!

And like magic, all my network drives were mapped

Oh and I also added a password to all of my vista accounts, just under
that same User Accounts window. This way your are "logged in" and I
never was even prompted to enter a user name or password when trying to
map the drives.

I hope this helps.
