    Default network drive not accessible throught task planner

    hi,
    i created a simple script to start a slideshow:
    "C:\Program Files\IrfanView\i_view64.exe" /slideshow=Z:\pictures\*.jpg /reloadonloop /fs /bf

    when i double click on it, it works!
    Z: is accessible from explorer.

    If i put this script in task planner, i receive an error from irfan:
    No files in the input list!

    i click "ok" on the error message, irfan is still open, then i click on "open" and i don't see the network drive Z:
    So i close irfan, relaunch it by the shortcut, "open", and here, i can see the network drive Z:

    The network drive disappear when the script is launch throught the task planner.

    I tried:
    use unc path in my script: "C:\Program Files\IrfanView\i_view64.exe" /slideshow=\\nas01\folder\pictures\*.jpg /reloadonloop /fs /bf
    unistall with revo uninstaller, reinstall, install plugins saw this: https://irfanview-forum.de/showthread.php?t=12268

    thanks

    Default Something else to try

    FWIW, your script worked for me using i_view32. Perhaps the problem is with the 64-bit version.

    You might try changing the script to navigate to the mapped drive first and defaulting the directory on the IrfanView command line. Something like:

    PUSHD "Z:\pictures"
    "C:\Program Files\IrfanView\i_view64.exe" /slideshow=*.jpg /reloadonloop /fs /bf
    POPD
