I am setting up a computer under our company domain. I installed 2008 as a local admin, which went smoothly. However, the moment I login as a network user and attempt to use it, it says "Error 1324. The path My Pictures contains an invalid character." The problem is that many of the user folders are on the fileserver, which the registry points to. The network drive was mapped, and so I replaced it with N:\My Pictures and brought up an error that said the N drive was not acceptable.
I changed it to %UserProfile%\My Pictures , no dice.
Could it be that it doesn't like the "\\" in front of the network drive?
