    Server Execution Failed

    Hi All,

    I have created an exam environment with a few different scripts including a VBS script that kills explorer.exe so students don't get the task bar and a command to open up an exe i have created. In the exe window i have a icon that is supposed to open up H:/ (home area) but when you click it I get "Server execution failed" after a few seconds of the command prompt hanging.

    When I run the environment with explorer.exe running the links work fine and open the appropriate drive however as soon as explorer is killed it stops.

    Does anyone know a way around this?

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Can you navigate to the mapped drive in cmd without Explorer.exe running?

    Well... Access to the command prompt is disabled as its a student account however it can run scripts. I have icons that run vbscript commands (i.e)

    Sub RunFolder Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    objShell.Run "cmd /c start H:/"
    End Sub
    This works for everything else but it hangs on opening any drives
