First of all, I got it working without the need to enter the NET USE command (you can see in test #3 how I got it working...).
I've done some more testing:First test
: No information in shared folder field nor access credentials. After clicking on BROWSE, I get another window (Select Share) and after clicking on WORKGROUP, I can see my NAS server (with the '>' sign in front of it). After double clicking on the NAS name, the only thing happens is that the '>' sign is being removed from the NAS name. Nothing else happens.Second test
: I entered the following information in the Shared folder field: \\192.168.1.150\backup and after clicking on BROWSE, I get the same situation and problem as seen in the previous item. So, the BROWSE option doesn't make much sense.Third test
: In the Shared folder field I entered the full path to the veeam directory on my NAS server: \\192.168.1.150\backup\backup-veeam
subsequently entered the access credentials and clicked on NEXT and.....voila, the next screen shows my .vbm files.
So, clicking on BROWSE doesn't make any sense, no matter what you have entered in the Shared Folder field. The solution is to enter the full path to the shared folder, enter the access credentials (if required) and then click on NEXT to get the information you're looking for.
As it is working fine now, I've installed VEB on my 2 computers and they are both running fine. Many thanks for you guys to make this solution available for free!!!! It's working even (much) better and faster than many other software solutions you have to pay for...
