I have a wpf desktop application using C#.
In my app i call various images that are located in a folder called IMAGES that is located at a location on a server. Which I will just call MyServer1
So for example this is the path to 2 of my images
So when I install this app on various computers connected to the network and i map a blank drive such as the S: drive on each computer
to : \\MyServer1\WORK
Then the app works fine. But if i don't map the drive it won't grab the image.
But we dont want to have to map the drive on all the computers. Is there a way to put this network location like in my config file to tell it where the network location is and maybe give it my user name and password that gives the app access to this location.
I was googling this and read maybe i have to do it in a .ini fil or something but I have never done that.
Can anyone point me to a good tutorial on this? Or give me some advice so I don't have to map the drive for whatever computer this app gets installed on.
