Windows ME and use of the NET command

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by Victor Ferrara Jr., Jul 18, 2003.

  1. When trying to execute a batch file at the MSDOS prompt of
    a WinME workstation, which uses the NET command to map a
    network drive after connecting to a corporate LAN through
    a VPN connection, we get the following results...

    C:\>net use g: \\\mar_circ$

    Error 3545: You cannot start or stop the network from
    within an MS-DOS window.

    When using a Win2000 workstation under the exact same
    conditions, the NET command works like a charm. Anyone
    have any ideas how I can successfully map a network
    resource on this ME workstation... without upgrading it to
    a more robust OS?
