However, I would like to be able to access files on another computer on the network. Using a mapped network drive does not work because the windows service does not have access to the mapped drive.
Can I use UNC file paths instead of mapped network drives? I use a lot of objects in the CommonFileSystem application. Do they support UNC file paths? For example, how would I test for the existence of a folder or file? I currently use CfsStat stat: 'localfilepath'.
Is there support for reading directories, searching for filenames, opening files, etc. using UNC paths and will it work running as an NT service?
I am running IBM Smalltalk 7.0.
