PRB: SOFTIMAGE Particle Cannot see a Networked Database

PSS ID Number: Q173717 Article last modified on 09-12-1997




The information in this article applies to:

  • == Softimage 3D for Windows NT, version 3.7 ==


SOFTIMAGE Particle cannot see a networked database.


DatabaseDir.rsrc uses UNC names for the paths to the Databases. If there is a space in the Networked Share name, Particle will not see the Databases.


Either change the UNC name to the actual drive letter being mapped, or rename the share on the server so it does not have spaces.

For example:

\SERVERDrive is mapped to drive G:

the DatabaseDir.rsrc has the following entry:

DATABASE Database PATH //server/D Drive/Database

change the path to: PATH G:/Database


Rename the D Drive share and remove the space.


This behavior is by design.
