Map Network Drive GUI Missing

By jerrya ·
Have a user who when trying to map a network drive either by right mouse click on my computer, or via explorer/tools/map network drive, the gui does not appear. Strictly his id, as other id's on same computer do work. He is capable of mapping via command line "net use"

Any ideas?

It sounds like a registry setting, and this page describes exactly your symptoms. The only thing is, it says it's for NT, and you're using 2K. Still worth a try, see if they key is there, if so, change it:

Login as admin. delete the users local account. remove the user from anygroups local to the computer. readd the user to the security group , either user or power user. Have the user log backin to recreate the account. (remember to verify that the user folder is remove from documents and settings.

Answer one is on the right track: It is a registry setting. But, it may "pushed" by a policy for the user. If you didn't set policies for the network, the user may have played with poledit him/herself. Do y'all have the W2K resource kit laying around?

The safest way to fix that one glitch on that one computer would be poledit, to re-enable the map network drive menu.

Found the problem was mprapi.dll on the users home directory. Deleted the file from that location, and mapping now works properly. Thanks for the ideas, but in this case, was not a registry issue.
