Windows Server Path Issue

Post by Aaron9615 » Fri Aug 17, 2012 8:53 am

OK here is the issue. I have a program that is working great in WINE :), except one slight issue. The program ties to a SQL database for all of its data. I do have it working properly with SQL now, but with one issue. The program has a massive database of images files you can search for. They use a standard Windows unc path for the images (EXAMPLE) \\windows\share\folder\stuff WINE cannot translate this. If I mount the drive into .gvfs and change its pointer it corrects it for my WINE instance, but breaks it for all of the Windows installs darn SQL....... It also does not use drive lettering. Anyone have any ideas how to fix it? I need to be able to have WINE route to \\windows\share\folder\stuff

Code: Select all

mkdir -p ~/.wine/dosdevices/unc/windows/share/folder
ln -s ~/.gvfs/share  ~/.wine/dosdevices/unc/windows/share/folder/stuff

You sir are a genius :D . I tried that earlier, but must have been getting the path pointers mixed up. All is well now :D

Thanks Again!!!
