    Thanks for the feedback Barry. I'm hoping someone can confirm a solution that does not require UAC to be turned off.

    On the file naming, the structure hasn't changed with Windows 8. Are you sure the drive is being mounted at startup?
    See this for accessing the startup folder http://board.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=167076

    I tried the path name instead of the mapped drive (ie Dim objFile As New System.IO.StreamReader("\\HS3\logfiles\scriptlog.txt") and that worked. The network drive was reconnecting on startup

    Thanks, I'll give that a try.

    Added HS2 to Win 8.1 startup, but doesn't start

    I'm shutting down my very old XP box and moving HS2 to a Win 8.1 box. I've hit two snags. First, as stated in the title, HS2 doesn't start, even though it appears in the Task Manager startup tab. Anyone have HS2 auto starting on under Win 8.1?

    On a related note, I have a script that reads a network drive, that worked perfectly under XP and Win 7. I'm getting a Win 8.1 error that it can't find part of the path.

    Dim objFile As New System.IO.StreamReader("W:\\scriptlog.txt")

    Did something change in Win 8.1 with file naming/structure?

    Thanks,
    Barry
