HRESULT: 0X80070043

The network name cannot be found.

One possible solution is to use Regedit to modify (on my Windows 7 machine)

  • HKEY_Current_User/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Shell Folders->Personal
  • HKEY_Current_User/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/User Shell Folders->Personal

Note: There had been some changes in the network recently and they did not propagate to this level.

This is a common error, and effects MOSS, SQLSRVR, PS.. etc… Many of those have patches that can be obtained from Microsoft.
