Location of cfg file is not important.
What is written in file is what counts.

I have cfg files on local computers.
In c:\app\ folder.

But all configurations must point to SAME folder for net file.
You must have SAME value in "NET DIR" field.

If you use mapped drives, they must be mapped on same letter on all  
You can not have net dir as "w:\app\net\" on one and "x:\app\net" on other.
Also can not mix "x:\app\net" and "\\server\samba\app\net"
