“Cannot Access This Folder. Path Is Too Long” Error with Windows NT Policies


When you try to log on to a computer running Windows NT 4.0, you receive the following error: Cannot access this folder. Path is too long.


This problem may occur if the system administrator uses System Policy Editor to create a policy that sets the Hide Network Neighborhood Icon option and specifies that Custom Shared Folders or Custom Folders use an UNC connection to connect to a share on a central server. The above error message occurs because the Hide Network Neighborhood Icon option removes the ability to use UNC names for connection.
