Error Message Sharing Folder on Drive Created by SUBST Command
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows 95
When you try to share a folder or drive in Windows 95, you may receive the following error message:
Sharing: An error occurred while trying to share <share name>. Error 2116. Shared resource was not created at this time.
You may be able to create the share, but it is inaccessible as a network resource.
You are attempting to share a drive, or a folder on a drive, created using the SUBST command.
Share the folder from the original drive instead of from the drive created using the SUBST command.
You can use the SUBST command to associate a path with a drive letter. This creates a "virtual drive" that can be accessed as an additional local drive. For example, the following sample command creates a virtual drive F that refers to the C:\MyFolder folder:
subst f: c:\myfolder
The virtual drive you create using the SUBST command (drive F) cannot be shared as a network resource. You must share the folder on the local drive (C:\MyFolder).
