We have a situation currently where we will be retiring our OS X xserve running InDesign Server with the expectation to move to the windows version on a VM. An interesting questions has come up about the fact that the paths for Mac and PC users are different and we need the InDesign Server for PC to be able to work with the mac pathing of all of our clients. While I am aware there is a way we could use packaging to avoid the issue, we have plugins that wont work with that and need to use absolute paths for images.
I am sure people have dealt with this issue in the past but unfortunately have not been able to find much information about it. Can anyone shed some light on this for me.
