Why canít Reckon Accounts Business locate Network drives? Now I canít open my company files.


You may experience this loss of network drive on a Windows10 PC and when running Reckon Accounts as an administrator

This behaviour is an outcome of the slightly different configuration of Windows10.

You can regain access to Network drives with an adjustment to the Registry.

To Open the Registry Editor: 

Windows 10, 8:  type regedit in the Search box and select the Run command result

Windows 7 & Vista:  Start button > type regedit into the search box > Enter;

Windows XP:  Start button > Run > type regedt32 > Enter;

If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.


To backup the Registry

  1. On the top menu line, click on File >Export

  2. Select a location to save the file and in the File Name box enter a name;

  3. In the Export Range section, click on All;

  4. Click Save.


Configure the EnableLinkedConnections registry value
