I try to use system() to run a batch file which sitting on a mapped network drive like this :
but it gives me "Access is denied".

I can run this batch file in "Command Prompt" window successfully. When system() works with the files sitting on server machine, no problem at all.

I will appreciate if you can help me this.

Sorry - this really is not a bug (or at least is very likely not a bug)
