R-Drive(Technician) on Windows 8.1- Mapped Network Drives?

Post by The IT Pro » Wed Apr 30, 2014 12:26 pm

Hello,

We have R-Drive installed on a Windows 8.1 OS, and when using the Virtual Image Mapping feature, when given the list/tree of drives and directories to select an image, mapped network drives visible in Windows Explorer do not show up in the list. Expanding the "Network" tree, works as it scans for all network locations and we can do it from there. It's just, if I manually map a network drive, R-Drive does not see it, even when visible in Windows Explorer. We have tried compatibility modes as well, but that does not work. I am wondering if this is intentional or a bug. Is R-Drive fully compatible with Windows 8.1? The website says, Windows 8 but not 8.1, the kernel was changed in 8.1 so that's why I am bringing it up.

A small issue, nonetheless.

Thanks,

Actually, it wasn't a bug in its strict sense, Microsoft changed some permission rules in Windows 8.1.
