Shapes.atc wrong path

Hi,

We deployed AutoCAD LT 2006 from a network path and the result was all the file paths pointed back to the server. I have fixed the file paths in the tools-->options-->file locations but every time the user starts AutoCAD lt offline he gets the error cannot find \\Servername\profile\{shapes path} what i want to do is change the shapes path to point to the local drive. I've checked the registry and searched for ini or cfg files that may be pointing to it and i cannot find anything. Has anyone got some good suggestions, i have already uninstalled AutoCAD and deleted the folders pertaining to autodesk and reinstalled again.

Thanks

Cameron

What you want to do is a feature of full AutoCAD, and not
LT: AutoCAD profiles.

With LT, you have to decide whether everything is on the
server, or local, and stick with it. No changing on the fly,
no jumping around. So fix it for that user.
