    Unable to access Network Drive during an application installation


    Hi,

    I am using a personal cloud storage drive (MyCloud by WD) in my network. In my windows 10 I am trying to install an application (The Journal by David RM) where I have a choice to install on a network drive. But when I try to select mapped drive to my network location I am getting error. please check screenshot(s) why this is happening I have no idea. Please help.

    Thanks,
    Sudhir

    Hi Sudhir and welcome to Tenforums!

    Try it without mapping the share. Browse for it, or put in network address from explorer.

    I've had some similar problems lately. Could be some changes in Windows 10 (since 8.1 actually) or should WD update their firmware (won't happen most probably - depending which generation you have).

    Edit: do you have pro or Home Windows version ?

    Edit 2: Create share with administrator account... or

    (this is old tip I found for Windows 7) try this. Start registry editor and find key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Policies/System

    and create a new DWORD entry with the name EnableLinkedConnections and value 1:

    problem could be because you are running installer with administrator privileges, Mapped drive is accepting standard user (it was created by standard user). Sounds strange, but it works like that. Other solution is to turn UAC off, but you don't want to do that.

    Edit 3: see older post here on Tenforums Network drive not showing...
