Windows NT 4.0 (os)
Windows Nt (server)
Because of our filing system on the server, it is sometimes cumbersome
to navigate through many directories to find the desired DWG. So I have
been experimenting with shortcuts using AutoCAD's explorer, and placing
the shortcut in my "Favorites\Autodesk" folder.
The problem I have been having is whenever I use the shortcut to open
any drawing, AutoCAD (I'm assuming) opens that drawing, but creates a
duplicate drive on the network that only my computer acknowledges.
Mapped drives on server upon login:
M: (all drawings I access reside on this drive)
After opening a drawing using the generated shortcut:
E: (this is the drive that is recognized as the parent
directory for the recently opened drawing)
I have checked the shortcuts, and as far as I can see everything is OK.
If I close AutoCAD and try to disconnect the drive, I get an error
informing me that there is currently a file open on the drive and if I
would still like to disonnect it.
How do I correct this problem? Any assistance will be greatly
appreciated. Sorry for the length of this message.
