I am using Adobe Premiere Elements on a network. I redirect the My Documents folder to a network location for purposes of having a backup as my servers are all backed up to tape nightly. I'm having a problem with Adobe Premiere Elements which relates to the My Documents location being on a server.
Adobe Premiere Elements is using the My Documents location as the DVD cache locationeven though I have put an entirely different location as the DVD burning scratch disk. I say this only because when I go to burn a DVD it tells me that it can't and if I switch from the DVD to a DVD folder it shows the server location of My Documents as the folder to burn to. If I change that folder to a local folder and then switch back to burning to a DVD it works just fine. What I want is for that change I make to stick and there seems to be no place in Adobe Elements to make that change stick. Where should I be looking? Is there a registry hack? Or have I missed the appropriate place to make the change somehow? I don't want to have to make this change every time I burn a DVD.
No version of Premiere or Premiere Elements runs on a network

As John T., points out, Premiere does not perform well on a network.
I would contact Adobe Technical Support directly, in hopes that they might have some tweaks that will be helpful. With a few academic networks, they have offered some workarounds, that did help in limited situations. Unfortunately, none of those academic users ever dropped back by with any more than "we got part of it sorted out... " That has not helped us mere users in helping others on networks.
