Enable Access To Local Computer’s Drives

By default, WHS Office, WHS RemoteApp, WHS Outlook, WHS QuickBooks, and WHS Quicken allows access to the files and folders on the hard disk drives that are connected to your local computer from local (Launchpad) connections, but not from remote (Remote Web Access) connections. To enable or disable access the local computer’s drives:

Local Access From The Launchpad Application

1. From the Launchpad application, click on:

Add-ins -> WHS Office (WHS RemoteApp, WHS Outlook, WHS QuickBooks, or WHS Quicken) and click the Launcher or desired Microsoft Office application (or again on WHS RemoteApp (Launcher), WHS Outlook, WHS QuickBooks, or WHS Quicken).

NOTE: Starting with version 1.17.171.171, the connector will automatically sign in if you have the “Remember me on this computer” and “Remember my password” checkboxes checked. To prevent the automatic sign in from taking place (so that you can get to the connector’s Settings drop-down menu), simply hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard while clicking on the Launchpad icon. If you would like to reset all settings back to their default values, hold down the SHIFT key on your keyboard while clicking on the Launchpad icon.

2. Click on the Settings arrow in the upper-right-hand corner to display the Settings drop-down menu.

3. Under the Remote Desktop Options section of the Settings drop-down menu that appears, check the “Enable … to access drives on my local computer” checkbox and click on the “Save Changes” button.

The next time you connect, WHS Office (WHS RemoteApp, WHS Outlook, WHS QuickBooks, and/or WHS Quicken) will have access to all of the files and folders on the hard disk drives that are connected to the local computer.

 

Remote Access From The Remote Web Access Website

1. From the Launchpad application, click on:

Add-ins -> WHS Office (WHS RemoteApp, WHS Outlook, WHS QuickBooks, or WHS Quicken) -> Web Access

2. Sign-in to the server’s Remote Web Access website.

3. Click on the “Remote Desktop Options” link.

4. In the Remote Desktop Options window that opens, check the “Enable … to access drives on my local computer” checkbox and click the “Save” button.

The next time you connect, WHS Office (WHS RemoteApp, WHS Outlook, WHS QuickBooks, and/or WHS Quicken) will have access to all of the files and folders on the hard disk drives that are connected to the local computer.
