Accessing local and network drives through applications that run in Virtual Client Office

Alerts and notices

If you access applications through Virtual Client Office, you can navigate to your local network drives through application dialogs in which you can type a data location.

Note: You can open applications through Virtual Client Office by clicking the Applications link in the navigation pane and then clicking an application icon. (If you don’t see these items, you don’t have access to applications through Virtual Client Office.)

Browsing to the local C: drive

Virtual Client Office will automatically map to the local C: drive of the workstation you are logged into. Note that C$ (\\Client) (V:) is your local C: drive in the Virtual Client Office environment.

To navigate to your local drive, follow these steps.

  1. Click >Computer in any browse dialog.
  2. Click C$ (\\Client) (V:) to access folders and files on your local C: drive.
  3. To access files and folders that are saved to your local desktop, click Users, select your Windows profile, and click Desktop.

Browsing to a local network

Note: Not all applications allow you to browse to network drives.

To navigate to local network drives through dialogs in applications that are running in the Virtual Client Office environment, enter the path as \\client\<mapped network drive>$\.

Example: To access a local network drive M, enter \\client\M$\.
