Simple network drivemapping utility

<< < (2/2)


* Displays error message from NET command
* Can skip mappings by setting map# to empty string in .ini
* Clears an error message if no password was entered but then is entered (didn't before)

OK, a little Powershell implementation that's specific to the original request:

If there's an error:
Simple network drivemapping utility

Extract the archive to a folder.
Edit the MapDrives.ini for your drive mappings, the format is:

map#=<drive letter with :  eg. E:>

Where # = zero based numbering for each pair of map/unc items


etc, etc

See the included MapDrives.ini for an example.

NOTE: The first occurance of map/unc is special in that the username is added to the UNC path for the complete path, ie.

If the Username used for logging on is fred and the .ini contains:


Then drive Y: will be mapped to \\server01\users\fred

If you don't want this function, leave the map# parameter empty in the .ini file - leaving it empty will cause the script to skip that mapping entry, eg.


It relies on the net.exe command for the drive mappings so Admin privileges might be required, (don't know - I only have single user Admin systems).

Double-click the included shortcut icon.

NOTE: It will remove ALL current drive mappings before creating the new ones.

DISCLAIMER: It works for me.
