Mapped letter drives not listed in Studio File/Open
« on: July 25, 2018, 07:43:49 am »
Greetings, I've just installed WinBatch 2018B on my new Windows 10 workstation (coming from, yes, Windows 7).  WinBatch Studio File / Open only lists C:\ and not my other networked mapped drives.  I cannot find any other topics that addresses this issue.  What do I need to do so that these letter drives appear.  Similarly, when I right-click a .WBT file, and choose open with WinBatch Studio, the file is not opened.
Thanks!

There are at least 26 posts related to this subject on this forum.  Perhaps the search term may not have been the best.  The forum's search functionality is implemented in a non-intuitive way so that may have gotten in the way too.

Here is a link to a particularly relevant post:

The post suggests using one of the alternatively manifested exes but it may be better to consider one of the other mitigating tactics suggested in the Tech Database article mentioned in the post.
