    To all,

    I've had this same problem at my old job and I'm not sure how to fix it. What Kenzo is getting at though is if you, for example, do a file -> open within word, excel, etc. right click within the file-open window and left click on explore you'll get a desktop of the server. Essentially the same thing is happening for him.

    If anyone knows how to fix it, please post.

    Thank you,
    Rob Wallace

    Be verbose, please ...

    I added a link within Word2000 using STRG+K pointing to C:\

    What I get on screen is ...

    \\Client\C$\

    When I click on this it connects me properly to my client.

    I remember that during or after installing Citrix Metaframe XP1 with
    Service Release 2 the program offered me to run a (huh, long ago)
    program which changes the Server-Drive C:\ and D:\ to L:\ and M:\ in
    order to avoid some stuff.

    Most of the clients which connect have their client drives at C:\ and/or
    D:\.

    Citrix says, if you do not have this program run, the local harddrives
    of a client could not be connected to a Citrix-Session, if the client is
    a Windows-Machine.

    hth

    bis dahin - kind regards

    Martin Mewes
