putting a driver file on a shared network drive

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Hi, everybody!

I'd like to know if it is possible to register
a driver in the kernel, where its path is
a shared network drive (e.g.: x:\my_driver)
where x: is a "net use x: \\server\sharename".

I tried to do this, and the CreateFile returns
a "file not found"....

What am I doing wrong?

thanks,

- Barak
