 Windows 7 Network Location bug finally fixed! Minimize
Location: BlogsJohan Arwidmark    
Posted by: johan 5/11/2010

When deploying Windows 7 the Network Location dialog box is sometimes shown even though the machine is joined to a domain. It's only on specific hardware but it's quite common.

Microsoft now has a hotfix (KB 2028749) for this bug.

A "Set Network Location" dialog box appears when you first log on to a domain-joined Windows 7-based client computer

Optional Workaround:

You can set a Group Policy for Network Location - Computer Configuration  / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Network List Manager Policies / All Networks. Change Network Location to User cannot change location



This is the dialog box you  might get without the hotfix...

Hello Johan.

Is this the correct KB number?
Microsoft dupport say no such KB exists on their system, and I can't get hold of the hotfix.

If it is the correct KB, do you have a contact number where they know of it's existance that I can try?
