We use roaming profiles with redirected folders such as My documents, my Music, etc to a mapped network drive. When
creating new project in the New Project dialog box the following message is shown "Project Folder is not a valid path"
but Project Location and Project Folder fields above show the correct paths (i.e. \\server\username\NetBeansProjects)
reassign to project for evaluation
reassigning to filesystems.
Do I understand it correctly that \\server notation on windows is not supported by filesystems?
UNC paths are recognized in recent 6.5 development builds. For 6.1, please, map your path
\\server\username\NetBeansProjects as a network drive.

Can i use windows env variables (like %HOMEPATH% or %HOMEDRIVE%) in netbeans.conf file? If so how? So far i only know
that one can use $HOME for users default profile path (this might a way around the problem for me)
You can use "--userdir <whatever path>" when starting IDE.
Hmm that would mean creating custom shortcuts/program files entries for all of the users. Istn't there a way to use env
vars in the global netbeans.conf file? That would be easier
AFAIK, properties like %HOMEPATH% or %HOMEDRIVE% are not resolved in netbeans.conf. Just $HOME is available.
:( oki doki thx. Would it be possible to consider use of system env variables for futore releases?
If you really need it, you can file enhancement issue against core/code component.
Thx it is done :)
