Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Some time last week I logged on to one of the company's terminal servers to test installation of a particular piece of software which I installed directly from a network path equivalent to \\develop\c$\projects\projectName\Setup\ using the setup project I'd created in Visual Studio.

Testing eventually ended without the software going live, and I deleted the local copies of the code on \\develop\, because we won't be looking at the software again for a while.

However, now, whenever I log onto any computer in the organisation I get the message that "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable." and a message to look for an alternate path to \\develop\c$\projects\projectName\Setup\.

Presumably this is something I've caused to become associated with my user account (which is accessible on all of our computers), but I don't have any idea what the cause could be.

I realise that this is terribly light on details but does it ring any bells with any of you lovely people who can tell me how to stop it?

It's not various programs, it's one program, the one you installed from the UNC path. It sounds like your user profile is roaming, that's why it's following you to multiple computers. Look in your HKCU registry hive for items in the Run key. –  joeqwerty Apr 11 '12 at 12:08
Well, it is various programs but, fair point, the only program I've mentioned is the one whose origin I've got some idea of. The rest give me a lot less information. –  Frosty840 Apr 11 '12 at 12:30
Aside from that, what on earth does your third sentence mean? –  Frosty840 Apr 11 '12 at 12:30
Run Regedit... Go to your HKCU hive... find the Run key... see what entries are there... –  joeqwerty Apr 11 '12 at 13:01
On \\develop, reinstall and uninstall the software. Or (while logged in with a different account) delete your roaming profile and/or redirected application data folder. –  Harry Johnston Apr 14 '12 at 23:54
