SFM: MacFile Menu Not Displayed if NTAS Drive Letter Changes

Article ID: 103473

Article Last Modified on 10/31/2006



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server 3.1



This article was previously published under Q103473


SYMPTOMS

If the drive letter of the logical drive where Windows NT Advanced Server is installed changes, the MacFile menu in File Manager and Server Manager may not appear.

CAUSE

Windows NT Advanced Server Services for Macintosh records fully qualified filenames (including paths) to the registry to enable File Manager and Server Manager to provide MacFile menus. If you change the drive letter of the drive where Windows NT Advanced Server is installed, Windows File Manager and Server Manager will not find the Services for Macintosh AddOns and will not display the MacFile menus.

RESOLUTION

To correct this problem, use the Registry Editor (REGEDT32.EXE) and change the following keys to the correct path and filename:

WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to reinstall Windows NT to correct them. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use Registry Editor can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\File Manager\AddOns

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Network\SMAddOns


STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT and Windows NT Advanced Server version 3.1. This problem was corrected in the latest U.S. Service Pack for Windows NT and Windows NT Advanced Server version 3.1.
