Editing Slideshows Located on a Server

Question

I keep my Roxio projects and media files on a file server. Every time I open a project I have to tell VideoWave where the media files are located.

 

For instance - my slideshow projects are located at \\SERVER\Public\Roxio\Projects\Slideshows\*.dmsm

 

My jpegs for the slideshow are located at \\SERVER\Photos\Hikes\*.jpg

 

Every time I open a project I get a "Cannot Find Required Files" window.

 

The "Required files" have the following path names:

\\SERVER\Public\Roxio\Projects\Slideshows\SERVER\Photos\Hikes\picture1.jpg

\\SERVER\Public\Roxio\Projects\Slideshows\SERVER\Photos\Hikes\picture2.jpg

\\SERVER\Public\Roxio\Projects\Slideshows\SERVER\Photos\Hikes\picture3.jpg

\\SERVER\Public\Roxio\Projects\Slideshows\SERVER\Photos\Hikes\picture4.jpg

 

Where is VideoWave getting this path name? Why can't it remember to look for the media files in \\SERVER\Photos\Hikes\ ?

 

Yes, I could move everything to my local machine but I have a file server and I want to use it.

Roxio has not designed this application to work from a server, sorry. I don't know what issues there are in designinng a program for using a server as a source.
