Aplogies, my scripting is terrible based on the fact that I work purely in Infrastucture.
Anyway ,I have the following VBS script code which renames mapped drives. Is there away for me to convert this so it runs with my kixtart code for my users at logon.

Set oShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
oShell.NameSpace("H:\").Self.Name = "account"

Thanks Allen
I got the UDF and created the syntax as above. It runs without any errors but doesn't re-label the drive

Not sure why its not working, but I also tested the label udf on Win8.1 and while it returns "The operation completed successfully", the label does not change. Tried running under normal and admin. Seems like to me I have used this in the past, so it could be something to do with Windows.

What version are you testing on?

FWIW - the MapDrive() UDF that I wrote can update the label. I works on all platforms, including Windows 8, 8.1, and 10. That UDF uses the same logic as your VB code converted to Kix. One thing that this UDF does is waits for a valid connection after mapping before writing the drive label.

The latest version - 1.5 - can be downloaded from my web site. Use it as is or not, you might be able to see what's not working with your code.

That's weird. Since its using shell, it should fail with error if drive is not there. I remember doing my original label as registry write and that required persistent connections to work properly. I don't see any reason why this would have same symptoms.
