Network shares also for programs in administrator mode

Network shares also in admin mode

Embedded network shares are visible in Explorer.

As soon as you run an application with administrator rights and want to access the network shares via it, they suddenly disappear.

With a little intervention in the registry can change the behavior.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ System

If the DWORD value (32 bit) = EnableLinkedConnections already exists, the value should be set to = 2, otherwise it must be recreated.

Also helps with mapping of network paths executed via a logon script.
