14. marts 2007 12:31I use two picture browsers, Canon EOS viewer and Picassa, and neither one can connect to the server shared folders. The folders simply don't appear in the selection menus. Files on other computers on the LAN are visible and available.
However, Photoshop can browse and work from the server.
I have worked around this limitation by installing both of the viewers on the server and use the remote desktop to browse the pics but this is not what I thought the concept was supposed to be.
Is this a bug or do I need to do something else? I have tried putting the server shared folders shortcut in places that are visible but this not helped.
I have other programs that also have this limitation but this is the one causing me the biggest problems.
14. marts 2007 12:39Can you map the shares to a local drive letter and use that? I don't really like mapped drives, but maybe it's a workaround.
14. marts 2007 13:19I would mount a network drive letter to the \\server\ level. Then you would see all of the other directories under that. I'm sure that would fix the problem. I have seen that on several applications that I work with.
14. marts 2007 14:42That was a good suggestion and it solved the problem for Picassa. I don't have time to check it with the other one.
The one problem I had was in mounting a drive, I could not simply point it to the server. It had to be one of the sub folders of the server, i.e.
Drive S = \\server, would not work; it had to be = \\server\photos
