Windows 7 64 Bit


Our company uses an accounting program called Wisetracks which is built using the Borldand Database Engine.

We have installed this program under 32bit Windows XP as well as Windows 32bit Vista.

It will not install under Windows 7 64bit which we want to move to.

I have installed the program under Windows 7 XP Mode.

The problem is the following:

The Borland Database Engine administrator requires the database files which reside on our server as Drive F: to be mapped .

Under Windows 7 the mapped drive is shown as:

F on Win7PC and the Borland program does not recognize this.

How can I do drive mappings so that this works.

Windows 7 64 Bit
Borland Database Engine Windows 7/Drive Mapping


Thanks for the help. I did try that, but even when I put in the IP address of the server,it would still say address not found. Therefore no mapping.

Instead, what I did was to change the network adapter from shared to bridge mode. That enabled me to see the Network and the drives in it, and thus be able to map.

Thanks anyway for your prompt advice.

O okay, I didn't know you had it set to shared. Bridged is the default setting so I assumed that's what you had it under. But on the other hand that would explain the reason for it not picking up since when it configured as shared it creates a virtual network between the host and the vm. Then under bridged it bridges the hosts Nic to the virtual nic the guest uses, allowing them to see the same networks.

But im glad you got it figured out, .

By the way welcome to the forums.
