My 2 cents: from experience, once you've accessed the share from windows
itself, e.g. through explorer,
The underlying network magic seems to handle the connection
authentication when you next call it from code.
Never knew why or how but I often bypass programmatic access problem by
first accessing the share through explorer.

I'd re-test your code after re-starting your machine, and/or un-mapping
the share from your network neighbourhood and see if it still works.
