How to display My Network Places with FolderBrowserDialog


G

Guest

I am using the FolderBrowserDialog in my application and it works well. However, when it is displayed, it does not include "+ My Network Places" in the list of available locations. I notice that other Microsoft applications (like opening a .zip file and clicking browse) do include My Network Places. How is this done? Thanks!

Are you using .NET Framework 1.1? When I use it, "+ My Network Places"
shows up just fine. Are your security settings at default? Are you running
the application off a network share?

Thanks,

Yes, I have confirmed that .NET Framework V1.1 is installed.
Yes, security settings are at default.
The application is being run off my desktop PC. It is connected to our LAN.
Other MS applications, like unzipping a .zip archive and clicking
"Browse..." do include My Network Places, but not my VB.NET app that uses
FolderBrowserDialog.

I will have to look into this further as well. The only difference between
my setup and yours is that I am using C# and you are using VB.NET. You
would not think that would make a difference...

I will try to respond as soon as I find something out

Take care,

I've been successful in answering my own question, and you're probably going
to be interested in this...

If the RootFolder is set to Desktop, then My Network Places is shown. If the
RootFolder is set to My Computer, then My Network Places is not shown. I had
changed it to My Computer some time ago during development, because I wanted
to be sure that all the drives would be listed. At the time, I did not
notice that My Network Places vanished from the list! So this mystery is
solved. Kinda subtle, eh?

Thanks for looking into this, Ben.
