UNC paths requiring login


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm using FileChangeDir() to access files on a network share using UNC syntax, i.e. \\server\share\. The problem is, I can't access the folder in Windows without typing a username and password (which I know, obviously :( ). How can I connect to the folder in AutoIt? FileChangeDir() doesn't have options for a username and password, and I can't find an answer in the documentation or the forums. Can anyone help?

cheers

Would RunAsSet and RunWait work for you?

You need to use DriveMapAdd to authenticate and connect to the remote share first.

DriveMapAdd( "device", "remote share" [, flags [, "user" [, "password"]]] )

Pass "device" as an empty string if you dont want to map a drive.

Don't forget to call DriveMapDel when you're done.

That's it - DriveMapAdd did the trick! Thanks very much. I thought that I would have to map a drive if I used DriveMapAdd, but clearly I didn't read the documentation thoroughly enough :(
