    arbitrary folder for  preLoadNetThing read

    Leila_Sink
      I'm trying to use preLoadNetThing to from a CD or another predefined location on my computer.
      I can use it to read from the folder than contains my movie but I'd like to be able to read from CD.

      This works:
      picturePath = "@\Images\" & filename
      netId = preLoadNetThing(picturePath)

      But I can't get:
      picturePath = "E:\\\Images\" & filename
      netId = preLoadNetThing(picturePath)

      OR
      picturePath = "C:\Images\" & filename
      netId = preLoadNetThing(picturePath)
      using 1, 2 or 3 backslashes at beginging


      OR
      picturePath = "file:///E:/Images" & filename
      netId = preLoadNetThing(picturePath)

      Am I trying to use this wrong? Eventually this code needs to work in a projector.
      is there a way I can get preLoadNetThing to read from a specific path?

      Thanks,
