One of our customers has our applications (PB 2017 R3) in a folder on a fileserver.
All shortcuts on the users computers are like this: \\Fileserver\Maritech\App\app.exe
Most of our other customers instead maps this share \\Fileserver\Maritech\ to a permament drive, ie. G:\, so that the shortuts is G:\App\app.exe rather than UNC.
In my opinion, running our application from a UNC share looks to be much slower than from a mapped drive.
Is this a known issue? Do you always prefer to run from a mapped drive?
To run the application locally on each computer could of course be a solution, but it makes upgrading a nightmare.
Now we just kick everyone out, upgrade \\Fileserver\Maritech\App with a new version and there you go.
To introduce a new regime with setups and stuff is totally off the table at this stage.
The fileserver is Windows 2016 Standard.
Databaseserver Windows 2008 Server R2.
