  • Hi,

    Note : I am new to this forum so if the question is suitable for another category please forward it to suitable one. I posted it to file services earlier and posting it to this group as suggested.

    I am usign WNetAddConnection2 API to mount a drive from nfs, and it fails with error code 53, I can ping the remote server, do net use/ mount and mount the drive. I tried searching net but couldn't get anything from there, any help would really be appreciated.

  • Had the same problem. Got known decimal code 54 means "The network path was not found". Finally experimentally confirmed it was a ‘\’ sign on the end of network path.

    Best regards,
