B3, Win7x64: file path name problem with network share
« on: September 11, 2014, 08:33:07 pm »
Most of my source files are accessed through a Samba server -- on my Windows 7 x64 PC, I have a network share set up mapping Z: to \\smb1.rchland.ibm.com\afsrch. If I cd (in VS) to z:\usr6\bej\dev2000\slic\v7r2m0f\usr\cmvc\base.pgm\ and then edit (edit command from command line) "test.C" (file does or doesn't already exist, doesn't seem to matter to the issue), the file path name shows up as \\smb1.rchland.ibm.com\afsrch\usr6\bej\dev2000\slic\v7r2m0f\usr\cmvc\base.pgm\test.C. If instead (from the same directory) edit "z:\usr6\bej\dev2000\slic\v7r2m0f\usr\cmvc\base.pgm\test.C", then the file path name is left as z:\whatever....

VS 18 would leave the path name as z:\whatever in both cases. The difference is causing some issues. Why is the name translated to the UNC path name in the one case? Can it be fixed?

I can't reproduce this now on Beta 5, so thanks for the fix.
