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
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…
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?
