    I am running virtual XP mode in WIn 7. In XP I am able to map a drive G: that is from Win 7 mapped drive (Microsoft Terminal Services). Great, in Explorer you can see the mapped drive. I need to set up an ODBC connection to a database on that drive. No problem I thought. When I need to select a drive in the Select Database window, I cannot see that drive, only A:, C:, D: , the default drives, G: is not shown.

    Is this a bug, or is it normal? Did I do something wrong?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    I finally solved it.

    I got a hold of our knowledgeble network person and were able to map network drive. It just needed another format/prefix on the login window. I was then able to setup an ODBC for the Access database.

    Looks like virtual XP doesn`t respond well with to tsclient, so had to use normal windows mapping.

    Another problem solved!!
