Windows 7: Change name of Network Location group name

29 Jul 2011   #1

Change name of Network Location group name

I'm trying to install a client application on a Windows 7 PC. When the install runs it looks for the network group name "Network Drives" which was found in Windows XP. When trying to run the client install in Windows 7, the install cannot find my mapped network drive because the group name in Windows 7 is "Network Locations"

Is there a way to change the group name "Network Locations" in Windows 7 to "Network Drives"?

Thanks in advance,
