Mapped or External Drives...Can ShadeVision be installed to them?
Q - Can ShadeVision be installed to a mapped or external drive?
A - No. ShadeVision cannot be installed to an external drive. The database server (Firebird) installs to the computer's (c:) drive and will need to have the database on a drive that is local to the PC...no external drives or mapped drives. The database server cannot manage databases that are not installed locally. During install, the user can select the drive for the DB to reside on. Unfortunately, they can select a mapped or external drive even though it will fail afterward! Typically, a server installation will have the database on a local data drive (d:) and the Firebird server will have to be installed to the default location on (c:).
