Description neriksmoen 2007-03-07 06:31:22 UTC
I have Ubuntu installed on one machine with Samba enabled and NetBeans
installed, as well as NetBeans on a Windows XP machine. On XP, I am unable to
either save or open a Project file on a network drive because it appears that if
the location isn't a set drive (eg: C:, A:, etc) then it isn't valid. The
message I get is "Project Folder is not a valid path". 

I've searched around and it doesn't look likes it a very big issue at the moment
with other users, but having the ability to save to a networked drive would be a
big plus in cross-platform programming and testing, rather than saving the file,
copying to network drive, opening a "new project", then re-building and running
the code.

Currently network drives must be mapped to drive letters, sorry.
