UseShare is a Windows service configured to run with Network Service Credentials which maps shares with NET USE.

After installing browse to the directory where it was installed and open useshare.exe.config.  In the appSettings section add a key for each machine you would like to map a share to.  The value in "value" will get passed directly to NET USE, so everything that is supports will work.  Note that arguments with spaces need to be enclosed in quotes (see the second entry for an e.g.). 


Either reboot the box, or start the UseShare service and restart "Windows Media Center Receiver Service" and "Windows Media Center Scheduler Service".

If you're using an extender, you'll want to create a cmd/bat file that does the same thing for your extender user.  This service will not address that.
