  • Hi,

    Shared folder required to publish will have a UNC path like mentioned in example \\myservername\myapp\*

    so just share your c:\myapp folder as "myapp"

    on other computer use map network drive option map \\myservername\myapp\* as  M:\

    it would be published as drive M:\.

    You create a logon script to create map drive for every user or selected users  in active directory

  • **\\myservername\myapp\**   is called a unc path which means the directory is some where published over the network. If you want to be c:\myapp then you should copy if on the local drive of the user or do a script.

  • Syed is right...

    the UNC path target folder should be properly shared ...

    if  you still unable to access with \\ servername\sharedfolder     then try the ip of server \\xx.xx.xx.xx\sharedfolder.

    if proper permissions are there still not working check the following servides

    computer browser

    server

    workstation

    all the best

    Good to see that your problem is solved using shared folder in target UNC path.
