Registry tweak

By james hardy ·
I am currently running Win2k with office 97.
In office I can set the file locations to a location on a server, this defaults to a UNC path. I would like to set this up to be a drive path j..... on Win95 I could do this by editing a key in the registry,

however this key is not in the registry with windows 2000. Is there any other way of doing this. This is a windows 2000 problem as the reg key edit works for win95 and 98.

Use map network drive to map the server path to a drive letter (j:), then under the options is office use the mapped path. When you map the path, make sure you select the checkbox reconnect on login. You can also set a secondary path that office will use when/if the mapped path is not available. I believe you have to make the path selection in each office products options dialog.

I have tried mapping a drive and using options in Word to connect and it works except it reverts straight back to a UNC path in the Office-tools-options-file locations.
