Network Drive

Messagede wquatan » 18 Juin 2013, 00:24

Why is Liberkey the only Portable Apps Tool not allowing to use it from a network drive ?
In my case the setup is even a local share with a drive-letter assigned to it.
I really consider this check overdone. If running Liberkey from a distant network drive (with drive-letter) would be problematic, one would see that when launching a program !

All other Portable App Tools I have tested/used so far, don't have problems with that and therefor additionally the use of the tool from any PC on the network is possible too.

I really hope this check will be removed in the future.

Thx (also for the otherwise great tool) !

I am using Windows 7. The two suggestions I am making vary on earlier windows releases.
Suggestion 1:

Create a symbolic link (very similar to a junction) to the liberkey folder on the network. There are at least a couple of variations on the specific ways to accomplish what you want.

Suggestion 2:

The command line Subst command. I suggest A: or B: but you can use whatever drive letter you have available.
Again, there are variations on the specifics that will accomplish the same thing.
For example: subst b: \\netshare\Liberkey.

I have not tried such tactics with Liberkey, but these tactics have worked for me in similar situationss.

Thx !
Indeed the xml-change solved the network-issue.
Before posting I did a search, but somehow I didn't come across that topic.
Why not having this available in [Configuration] ?

As I described, I have a drive-letter mapped to the shared Liberkey-directory. The program detects that the drive is within Network Neighborough and gives the error
However, it's solved with the xml-change
