Missing mapped network drives

Simian unable to see mapped network drives is likely due to Simian being given administrator privileges (set to "Run as Administrator") so it can read and write to the Windows registry to store the validation information, but the mapped drives were created with standard user privileges and Windows isn't allowing the administrator application to access the standard user mapped drives.

First try setting User Account Controls to "Never notify" by following these steps:

  • Start button → enter UAC in the "Search for programs and files" → click the Change User Account Control Settings link at the top → Lower bar to Never Notify → Click OK
If that is already set or doesn't work, follow the steps to add a new registry entry for EnableLinkedConnections on the following webpage:
