2013 & Network drives

Post by bookermorgan » Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:57 am

Is anyone else having issues opening or saving files to a network drive in SP1?
I am also not able to drag a dwg onto MSCAD to open it.

I learned that in order to open and save files onto a network drive you need to have read and write permission for that drive.

I also learned that MSCAD does not function if try to open a dwg by double-clicking on the file. You need to start MSCAD and then open a dwg.
