hi steven,

a question:

what means EXACTLY exactly?
e.g. i've an app installed on the drive   P:\MyApp

NET DIR is set to P:\MyApp

then I share the whole drive P: within the network.

and have one (or more) worstations (ws1, ws2, ...).
eg. ws1 access the drive as N:
the ws2 as Z:

and on ws1 the NET DIR is set to  N:\MyApp
on ws2 to Z:\MyApp


i.e. all pcs points to the same directory MyApp on the "server" drive P:
do you see any problems? and if yes, why?
