Hi guys, I'm new in this forum and I'm having a trouble working with Eclipse Galileo (Eclipse for PHP Developers). I'm working on a windows machine and want to work with PHP files located on a PC of my network (Almera003) with a shared directory (sig). On windows explorer I can access to this directory typing:
\\Almera003\sig
In that directory I have a .project file that has been created with eclipse on GNU/Linux Ubuntu. The .project file looks like this [1] just in case....

The problem is that when I import the project into my workspace, I can browse in the shared directory with the 'network sites' option on the file browser and I do import the project without problems but when I open it, I don't see anything and if I go to Project->Properties I can see this:

Path: /AlmeraSIG
Type: Project
Location: \\Almera003\sig - (does not exist)


Does anyone knows how to solve this?

Thanks

It works if you map a drive letter to the share and then use the drive when
importing the project rather than the UNC name.

Namaste, Bruce

Sorry for the later answer......It works great just like you say Bruce, I only had to map the shared folder to a letter on the PC and that's it. How can I mark this thread as [SOLVED]?
