drive map exception

drive map exception

drive map exception

(OP)
ok this is a nasty one,
one of the work stations has a differnt "root" directory as the other stations. i never really noticed this because the station belonged to the department head, who never had to use our foxpro data entry program untill we had some cut backs. the source code uses /foxpro/ua/file (no drive letter) to access the system but on her station the directory is in a differnt place. you can run fox.exe but it cant find the fxp's. i cant really remap the drive because she has "criticle" information on directories not availible to other users.
is there a way to fool foxpro into thinking /foxpro is on the root directory on just that one station?
 

RE: drive map exception

YOU CAN STILL USE THE 'USE' COMMAND and map the drive/path SO THAT THE RESULTANT PATH IS SAME.

RE: drive map exception

Try putting a
PATH = "wherever\the\fxps\are; wherever\the\dfs\are"
in that users CONFIG.FP file
