    Resolved [RESOLVED] VB6 "Path Not Found" Error After Update

    Hi,

    Just updated Windows 10 with the new "Creators Update". Directly after the update my visual basic projects fail to open when opening from a network drive "L:\".
    I get the following error when trying to open the project:

    Path not found: 'L:\Projects\MyProject.vbp'

    The L:\ drive is a mapped network location in windows explorer.

    When using the 'Open Project' command on the File menu, the L:\ drive is not visible... However you can browse for it fine using windows explorer. Interestingly, you can open the project from the "recent" tab in the "Open Project" form. However, any code which accesses the L:\ drive in the project does not work.

    I have tried basic solutions like changing the compatibility settings, running as an administrator etc... But none of these work.

    Thanks for your time and I hope you can help.

    I recently encountered the same kind of problem you have.
    I managed to solve it with help of the following article:

    Alternatively you could map the share to a drive letter within the elevated token context. This is easily done through an elevated command prompt or by running an elevated BAT/CMD file or WSH Script.

    Windows 10 does not allow to map the same network location twice.
    At least that's what I encountered.

    Not sure why it wouldn't.

    Worked fine here:

    Ok, after the code ran for a while, again I got the error message "Path not found" The following works:

    Open a command prompt as Admin

    enter "net use U: \\masterdata2\c" (leave out the quotes) where "U" is the letter I am assigning to the share and "\\masterdata2\c" is the share name. Works!!
