Okay, so next problemo.
I've set the home drive to N:\, which is where My Documents goes, but this isn't actually the users My Documents so when they save I've got no idea where it's saving.
What do I do here, anyone done it?
Tip here it is saving to local user profile directory somewhere we found you had to physical go to N drive and save it.
Can you clarify that are the users My Docs there or not?I've set the home drive to N:\, which is where My Documents goes, but this isn't actually the users My Documents
I found that not putting a \ on the end of the path worked e.g HOME=U: the program automatically creates a folder called "Scratch Projects" in that location so look for that.
When I logon locally to the machine, browse through documents and settings then look for the username of the person and go into there, I can see it in the My Documents there but when they're logged in and click My Documents, it's not there. It's saving to the local profile as Russ pointed out.
I just know people are going to save to this area instead of their own My Documents and wonder where their files are. Hmm.
Ah are you using folder redirection of My Docs to a share, is there no mapped drive to their work folders I thought you said it was N:?
I'm confused, it's too early!
When I click 'My Documents' it goes to N:\ but strangely navigating directly to N:\ is disallowed! Something odd there.
Yes if you set the path to N: in the Scratch config file but the user can't access it then there's your problem. I'd investigate why the user can't access the N: drive.
Are you navigating to N: in My Computer or typing it into the address bar? Typing it into the address bar doesn't always work on locked down accounts.
Going to N: in my computer works fine.
Ok so if you open N: it goes straight into the users My Docs folder or is the My Docs folder another level down?
If it goes straight to the My Docs folder and still doesn't work do you definatly have HOME=U: set not HOME=U:\ in the scratch config.
Setting the home folder to N: and visible drives to N: seemed to crack it. Thanks a lot! Now to build the package for the final time.
If you won't have many people using it at the same time you can just run it from a share no rollout necessary.
