We have a small application (vb.net 2008) that we want to allow users to run from a network server. There are also a couple of Access datafiles that the application needs that are on the server in Shared Documents. In our single user app, we get shared documents using the SHGetFolderPath API. However, when running from a network server, that doesn't work because the path it returns is valid for the server (C:\Users\Public\Documents) but not for a workstation. How can I get a path to shared documents that will work from the workstation so they can access the files?
Thanks for any help
