MSB Bugs: Program Stops Responding After You Type Your Name

Article ID: 250605

Article Last Modified on 8/6/2002



APPLIES TO

  • Scholastic's The Magic School Bus Explores Bugs



This article was previously published under Q250605

SYMPTOMS

When you start Scholastic's Magic School Bus series: Explores Bugs, the program may stop responding (hang) when you type your name and then click Go.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs if you used a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path name to install the program from a network share.

RESOLUTION

To work around this issue, map a drive letter to the network share from which you installed the program.

To map a drive letter to a network share:

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, and then click Windows Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Map Network Drive.
  3. In the Drive box, click the drive letter that you want to map to the network share.
  4. In the Path box, type the following line

    \\servername\sharename

    where servername is the name of the server from which you installed the program and sharename is the name of the network share from which you installed the program.
  5. Click to select the Reconnect at logon check box.
  6. Click OK, and then quit Windows Explorer.
