Windows 7: BDE Administrator (Borland Database) can't find mapped drive.

01 Jul 2016   #1

Windows 7 professional 64-Bit
BDE Administrator (Borland Database) can't find mapped drive.

We use a program that utilizes BDE administrator to setup the databases on mapped network drive. We currently have 3 computers networked together, all sharing the same mapped drive M:. All computers are running Windows 7 64-bit. 2 of the 3 computers have no trouble using BDE to setup the database for the software we use. On the third computer, I can't setup BDE to find the mapped M: drive. When I go to change the settings, the M: drive doesn't show up in the list of available drives. However, when I go to Explorer on the computer, I can clearly see the mapped drive and it's available. I have no idea why BDE won't show the mapped drive, and I'm in desperate need of help. I have to have this active by Tuesday morning. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
