You need to access as administrator. Thus 'access denied'. Either that or PC not accepting Remote Administration. tomold March 13, 2012 3:46:15 PM thanks for reply, here is the solution i found and makes no sense to me, but it runs net use \\172.25.0.18\c$ /user:administrator password if exist \\184.108.40.206\c$\misc goto done echo "make directory" md \\172.25.0.18\c$\misc one echo "done" Related resources Not able to use net - Forum Net Use System Error 66 on Windows 8 - Forum Need . net 4 to use catalyst control centre? - Forum Can i use ps's or xbox's for net cafe - Forum How to install " net use " - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Plus not having admin rights to the machine would cause this. To even get to the hidden c$ share you need to use a local admin account. tomold March 15, 2012 12:20:06 AM Best answer selected by tomold. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
