InstallShield 2012 Spring doesn't show mapped network drives in Windows 10
My InstallShield 2012 Spring (Professional) project was kept on mapped network drive W:\IS2012Projects when my PC ran Windows 7. Then I upgraded to Windows 10. I had to disconnect my mapped network drives and reconnect them again. All of the applications on my PC show the mapped network drives in the Open File dialog boxes except for InstallShield 2012 Spring. I downloaded and installed the trial InstallShield 2015 Professional but it does not see the network drives either. Is there a fix for this problem? InstallShield is the only program I have that has this problem. I have not been able to update 2012 Spring because when I try to update it says there is an error.
Thanks very much,
Not showing mapped drives in open file dialogs is a Windows 10 behavior

I added the registry DWORD they suggested and now InstallShield 2012 Express and 2012 Spring Profession both show my mapped drives in the Open File dialog box. Be sure to reboot your PC after you add that DWORD to your registry.
