I am running virtual XP mode  in WIn 7.    In XP I am able to map a drive G:  that is from  Win 7 mapped drive  (Microsoft Terminal Services).  Great, in Explorer  you can see the  mapped drive.  I need to set up an ODBC connection to a database on that drive.  No problem I thought.  When I need to select a drive in the Select Database window, I cannot see that drive, only  A:, C:, D: , the default drives,  G: is not shown.

Is this a bug, or is it normal?  Did I do something wrong?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

And what happens if you click on the network button?

Thanks for reply..

It's the same interface as for Map Network Drive.   When you drop down the availble drives,  G: is filled in already.  If you choose another letter,  when you Finish,  it does not appear on the drop down.  Very strange, but it will appear on Network Drive list in Explorer.

There is no problem in accesses the Network Drives.  I can open all folders and contents, which are Access databases and Crystal reports.

This one has me stumped!

Try deleting the mapped drive and mapping again with net use on commandline, then restart the odbc applet.

I finally solved it.

I got a hold of our  knowledgeble network person and were able to map network drive.  It just needed another format/prefix on the login window.  I was then able to setup an ODBC for the Access database.

Looks like virtual XP doesn`t respond well with to tsclient,  so had to use normal windows mapping.


Another problem solved!!
