I just set up a new Windows 7 machine and I am having accessing files on my network. I had no problem accessing the network shares and browsing through the files, but when I try to actually open an executable it gives me an error about it not being accessible because I don't have permission. Usually when I connect to my network shares for the first time it asks for a username and password, but it didn't this time. I assume this is the problem here. How can I supply my credentials to the network share even though it doesn't ask for them?
You should be able to map it with the net command via a command prompt.
or if you don't want to map the drive letter but still provide the credentials.
Note: Server can also be the IP address of the server.
Your username/password used to connect to these shares are also stored under the Credential Manager.
You can find it in the Control Panel.
