As of CS4, PrPro does access the My Documents folder much more than with previous versions. Hopefully, one of the Adobe folk will drop by this thread, with some good tips and instructions to get your network up and running with PrPro.
The network server that is being used is made specially for the likes of Premeire and costs about £18000. It works fine on it, and is not the problem. The server fools the computer and program into thinking is is a local drive.
As for having to be an adminsistator, unless this is something new since Premeire 2.0 then this fact is incorrect. I have been running Premeire on limited accounts for the last eight years with no problems whatsoever.
Thank you for your reply though.
Oh... OK... since the discussion I linked to has an Adobe employee who wrote in to agree that PPro is not designed to run in a network environment, it appears that you know more than Adobe does about forcing the program to run outside the design parameters
Since I don't work for Adobe, and only know what I've read in other discussions, I'll just step out and watch from the sidelines
You're not the first to come here with network issues. My own advice is to simply not use them. Keep everything local running from an Admin account.
Things tend to work better if you do.
(And yes, things did change with CS4.)
