How to view mapped network drives

The instructions in this technote will help you view mapped network drives within your programs on a computer with the operating system Windows 8, or newer. With AccuZIP6, these instructions can help you assign a mapped network drive as a watch folder in the Script feature, in addition to being able to select a mapped drive in the Folders area of Properties. Please follow the instructions below.

Run Regedit

Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Policies/System

On the right pane, right click and choose New > DWORD (32 bit) Value. Give it the name: EnableLinkedConnections. Give that a value of 1.

Close regedit.

Restart your computer.

Now you'll be able to see mapped network drives in the Script window's Watch folder, the Open Setup window, the Folders tab of Properties, as well as with other applications.
