Error loading Bifrost from a UNC share on Windows

Hi there.

I am having some difficulties running Bifrost from a UNC share on Windows.

I have copied the files to a network share, and set up MAYA_MODULE_PATH to point to that same location:

MAYA_MODULE_PATH=\\animfiles\Common\ProductionData\Plugins\Maya\Maya2019\Bifrost\2.0.2.0

 

We can load the plugins in Maya, but it's throwing the following errors on load:

// Loading Bifrost version 2.0.2.0
// Warning: Bifrost: Failed to read library config file //animfiles/Common/ProductionData/Plugins/Maya/Maya2019/Bifrost/2.0.2.0/bifrost/resources/plugin_config.json. //
// Error: Error: Failed to locate Json doc 'bifrost:\\animfiles\Common\ProductionData\Plugins\Maya\Maya2019\Bifrost\2.0.2.0\bifrost\resources\plugin_config.json'. //

 

I have verified that "plugin_config.json" does indeed exist on the path quoted in the error message.

 

I have also tried setting the MAYA_MODULE_PATH using forward slashes only with the same result. Loading from a local path (C:\...) works fine.

 

This seems to be related to Windows unc paths. Is there a workaround for this?

 

Maya version 2019 on Windows 10.

 

Thank you.

Svend
