Ah! That is a bit different from I how I understood your original post then ? when the data files are on a remote network, things have been known to go awry.
However, as long as the data files are on another drive on the _same_ system (I have two drives in my laptop for example), without requiring network access to get to the data files, then it should not be any issue.

Syed, In our case: * The C-drive is the hard drive on our own desktop computer and is where FM is installed. * The network drive is not a partition of the desktop hard drive, but instead a separate physical hard drive configured to be one of several in my company's network of drives.

I can understand network-based locations causing issues, but I have _never_ seen a problem where an executable (FrameMaker or otherwise!) is on one drive and the ?data? files are on a separate drive _on the *same* system_. In fact, I do this right now ? my C drive is the usual location for all executables (FrameMaker, Office, compilers, etc.) and my E drive contains all my other files (including the books and files I work on). And, I do not have any problems with this setup whatsoever. I am surprised that Adobe thinks that this would be a problem in any way! If really accurate, this would be a strange, and completely unacceptable, artificial constraint. Z -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
