Are you talking about making a shortcut to the new drive share? I'm not sure I know how to do that on XP, it's not my balliwick.
I put in a shortcut .lnk file to the new network share, but it did not result in Acrobat reading the target file.
Would a hard link work, or can't they be used with network shares?
You need Windows Services For Unix, it's released and maintained by Microsoft.
Then you can smbmount a Samba share to a specified folder.
Thanks for the tip, but I won't install/support that for everyone that will need these utilities in Acrobat.
There's no other way to get this done?
That's the only Microsoft-designed way of mounting a network share as a folder instead of as a network drive in Windows. There may be 3rd party products that add this functionality as well. Plainly, a default install of Windows just doesn't have that functionality so no, there is no other way.
