On Windows Vista, mapped network drives are initially disconnected in elevated processes (processes that run with administrative privileges). It is not clear whether this is a bug or a feature.
To work around this problem, rebuild your installation with Inno Setup 5.1.10 or later, which incorporates the following changes:
- Disconnected network drives are now enumerated and shown in Setup's Browse dialogs. If one is expanded, it will attempt to reconnect the drive, similar to Windows Explorer.
- If the letter of a disconnected network drive is manually entered into the edit box on the Select Destination Location page, Setup will attempt to reconnect the drive when Next is clicked.
