To all,

Maybe I'm wrong but the argumentative tone of all of this with regards to my 
question is the pits.

As far as I'm concerned:
1. Contact Shekhar at tcssup at adobe.com and discuss it with him.
2. We did what he told us to do.
3. No more problems (so far).

OK?

-- Ken

Subject: RE: "FrameMaker has detected a problem and must quit" Really?!


Hello Everyone,

Hope you are well. Well, there has been a flurry of emails on this topic and I 
(as the product manager for FrameMaker) wanted to mention a couple of things 
here to set the record straight J

?         Network file paths: FrameMaker 11 has been tested to work with 
network 
file paths. There is absolutely no change in behavior between FM11 and the 
older 
versions. So, you should not have any problems when your files are stored on 
the 
network location. However, in case you are experiencing any crashes when 
working 
with network files, we will be happy to take a look at your crash logs and help 
your troubleshoot your specific issue.

?         FrameMaker Lock file:There is lot of discussion and some confusion 
around the purpose of the lock file. Lock file is created by FM to tell the 
user 
that the file is open in another instance of FM. So, if we take the scenario of 
multiple users working on the same file set (which is stored on the network 
drive) and when a file is opened in FM, it creates a lock file. If another user 
tries to open the same file, FM will give the other user a warning that the 
file 
is open in another instance of FM. So, this is a feature, that prevents users 
from overwriting each other?s content. Furthermore, If you don?t want lock 
files, you can turn them off as well. Lastly, for more information, about the 
lock file and its behavior, please read the help page here

Hope this information is useful and clarifies things. Have a great weekend!

Thanks,
Kapil Verma

Hi, Dov.

What you say below is indeed what I would expect, and what is also my 
experience, with the Adobe applications I use (FrameMaker, PhotoShop and 
Acrobat 
Pro)? pretty much any Windows application today!

Thanks for the clarification,

Z

Importance: High

With regards to network folders and drives, Adobe software in general is 
essentially unaware of the media and location of the file. The provided file 
path, whether provided explicitly by the user with a file open dialog or 
implicitly as a link in a document is used ?as is? for operating system file 
access calls. That having been said, when one accesses files on remote and/or 
slow links or even with semi-reliable media (such as old and scratched CD-Rs 
and 
DVD-Rs), read errors and/or timeouts can and do occur that are much less likely 
than when accessing a file on a ?local? drive. The Adobe applications typically 
don?t attempt any special recovery operations when such read errors and/or 
timeouts occur. That is likely the source of problems reported.

I think that there may be some confusion about local vs. network 
folders/drives. 
Perhaps I read too much into Ken's responses from the Adobe tech!

In my case, all application executables are on my drive C and the data files 
are 
on drive E on the _same_ system. I.e., drive E is _not_ a network-mounted drive 
... it is physically installed on my laptop.

For this "all local drives" arrangement, there should _never_ be any issue for 
any modern Windows application.

However, if the data files are on a network server, even if that folder/drive 
is 
"mounted" as a "local" drive letter in Windows, then I can see where incorrect 
permissions on that remote location can cause confusion and access issues. You 
_have_ to have write permission on that remote drive/folder for example.

FWIW, I have used FrameMaker on a network without problems. I regularly back up 
my files onto a network server (into a folder where I have read/write access). 
Indeed, I just checked ... I don't have any difficulty opening those remote 
files, editing/saving, etc.

The point being that things on networks just have to be set up correctly, so an 
Adobe tech may want to _not_ recommend this for everybody. Regardless, I would 
not consider that as official Adobe policy.
