Running Apps From Network Drive Problem

P: n/a
Firstly Im writing not as a programmer, but a a network admin.

We are having a problem where students cannot run applications in
VB.net from their home area (a network drive). However the same app
works fine from a local drive or pen drive.

Does anyone know of any active directory restrictions which might be
causing this, or a group policy way of fixing it?

Thanks for your help.

We are running an AD 2003 Server network (all SP2)
Visual Studio 2005
Students DO NOT have local admin, and obviously I dont want to give
them local admin rights.

Regards
David Hamer.

This is not something to do with AD but a code-access-security permissioning
policy in the .NET runtime. Please take a look at this:
