I don't know about Macs, but on a Windows machine the path starts with a drive letter.
What does the term "does not work" mean? Are you getting an error? If so, what is it.
Long term, when you put your app on a production server somewhere, your paths might not be the same. It would behoove you to learn what the path will be on the production machine as soon as possible so that your app still works when you promote it.
1. Macs dont have drive letters
2. I was getting a 500 error but I finally got IIS to give me the CF error.
The destination R:/EngagEnterprise/ml/uploads specified in the file's upload action is invalid.
The destination either does not exist or is not accessible by this tag.
3. I know what the path would be on my production sever, it windows based and I just change the values in my settings table.
Since my post from yesterday, I set CF to run under my account, which is the same name on my mac as well and I realized that Parallels assigns a drive letter to my hard drive on my mac. I changed my path to use this drive letter and the above error is what I get. It appears to be a permissions issue with my account not being able to weite to thst directory.
