I am trying to install Abacus on to a new workstation.  It is currently running on another computer as a standalone.  
I was able to share the folder and lowered the UAC on the computer running Abacus.

Error: You cannot use UNC paths to install Abacus.  Please Run Station.exe from a mapped drive or change the Destination directory.

Do I map the drive on the new workstation or map the drive on the computer running Abacus?

Computer running Abacus: \\computername-9\Abacus\
