I'm using RH8 with Source Safe for version control. Whenever I open a project and RH retrives the files from Source Safe (on a network drive), I get a ton of boken links.
When I check the project folder on my local drive, all of the files are there, but RH is not reporting them correctly. RH easily fixed the links by selecting > restore. Then I save, then compile and check in all the project files, close the project.
When I re-open the project in a new directory, the same links are broken again.
Why do these links keep failing?
Not sure. How would I determine that.
If the path is "c:\file.htm" this is an absolute path and means that the path only works if the source files are located in the same location (i.e in a location where the C: drive can be found. A path of "file.htm" is a relative path and means it is relative to where the source files are. In other words it doesn't matter where the source files are located, the path will work because it is "inside" the source file structure.
