Re: Using UNC filenames
- (Now this really doesn't relate to VIM...)
I believe it's a general Win32 issue. The problem with referring to a file directly using its UNC name is that you have to have already established a connection with the target server, i.e., you have to have already logged in for at least once.
You need to either mount the network drive, or do the following once:
net use \\servername\share /user:your-account
