    I have a very simple code in VB6 project. It opens the file on the mapped

    strSourse = "S:\Coordinator"
    Open strSourse & "\InitialData.txt" For Input As #intFileNumber

    While on XP it works fine on Vista it produces an error 76 'Path not found'

    I mapped S: drive on both machines the same way. I can explore that drive
    manually and open the file with no problem.
    I think there is something I'm missing with the new security on Vista. But
    I tried to run my app as a regular user, as admin. The same problem.

    Thank you

    I've noticed that most folder browser dialogs and file open dialogs do not
    include mapped drives in Vista. Weird. I haven't figured it out yet but it
    is a real pain.
