    I have recently upgraded from xp to win8, and after this upgrade I cannot select the drives I have on my Network storage drives. I have attached a screendump, with the result from file Explorer to the right where you see drive letters for the Network drives, and the Moving Picture dialog to the left where the "OK"-button is grayed out when I select the directory. This seem to be different as it has no drive letter attached, but are name PVconnect.

    Also attached the log from mediaportal.

    I had the same issue myself, and it is a problem with Windows API; supposedly fixed in 8.1 so be patient for 3 more days and install the update. The way I fixed it was to copy and paste the \\Server-Name\Path from Windows Explorer into MovPic config dialog and it worked.

    I found a solution in an other threat. It had to do with mixed rights between user and adminstrator. Fix was a regedit.

    It would have been nice if you posted how to find the fix or how to fix the problem. To say you "fixed it" from another thread and not yield a link is .... well it is aggravating to others. I would appreciate the information. Thanks

    Here is the fix for all the network problems in win 8.1 maybe win 8 also
    Disable UAC "user account control"
    I did first under control panel, users accounts, user account control, took the slider all the way down

    Then i did the registry FIX, rebooted, all working now :)

    "
    The registry setting is the only thing that completely turns off UAC now:

    Location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

    Key: EnableLUA

    Value data: 0
