windows 98 error messages sharing

by bdgray In reply to windows 98 error messages ...

It sounds like you are trying to share a virtual drive. Here is what MS says:

SYMPTOMS
When you try to share a folder or drive in Windows 95, you may receive the following error message:

Sharing: An error occurred while trying to share <share name>. Error 2116. Shared resource was not created at this time.
You may be able to create the share, but it is inaccessible as a network resource.

CAUSE
You are attempting to share a drive, or a folder on a drive, created using the SUBST command.

RESOLUTION
Share the folder from the original drive instead of from the drive created using the SUBST command.

MORE INFORMATION
You can use the SUBST command to associate a path with a drive letter. This creates a "virtual drive" that can be accessed as an additional local drive. For example, the following sample command creates a virtual drive F that refers to the C:\MyFolder folder:

subst f: c:\myfolder
The virtual drive you create using the SUBST command (drive F) cannot be shared as a network resource. You must share the folder on the local drive (C:\MyFolder).

----------------------------
I never heard of this command before now! Hope this helps!
