Can’t Access Map Drives With Elevated Application

Seen this before. If you have mapped drives to a server/PC and then run an application elevated to run as Administrator and you don’t see the mapped drives here is a link that describes it and options to rectify.

Here is the solution that works for me:


Detail to configure the EnableLinkedConnections” registry entry

In Registry Editor, locate and then click the following registry subkey:
Right-click Configuration, click New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) Value.
Name the new registry entry as EnableLinkedConnections.
Double-click the EnableLinkedConnections registry entry.
In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, type 1 in the Value data field, and then click OK.
Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
