I've faced a similar issue. The above posters are probably right in that the mapped drive doesn't exist. In fact, even if you have a mapped drive in your default profile, you are currently logged in as that user, starting the service as that user, and have the service configured to run as that user, it still won't work. One solution I've used is to create a scheduled task like so:

at 17:40 /interactive net use L: \\servername\sharename /u:mydomain\my +user
Then at 17:40 you'll get a prompt for the password, then it will map the drive for you and your service will have access to that mapped drive.

You can also add a check for this in your Perl code:

unless { -d 'L:\' } { write_to_log_and_die(); }
