Windows 7 Network Location bug finally fixed!

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…
