Summary0000180: OpenVibe fails to load when using UNC network paths
DescriptionMy home folder and everyone's home folders are located on network drives. I have a network drive P: which points to //filesrv4. OpenVibe finds the paths:

//filesrv4/home$/antona/.windows/Application Data/openvibe

strange and it fails to load in the end:

[WARNING] Could not expand ${CustomConfigurationPrefix${OperatingSystem}}${CustomConfigurationSuffix${OperatingSystem}} while expanding ${CustomConfig
Caught an exception at the very top...
Leaving application!
Appuyez sur une touche pour continuer...
Steps To ReproduceI get an exception in:


(code modified from the original for debug purposes)

bool Files::createParentPath(const char *sPath)
    boost::filesystem::path p = boost::filesystem::path(sPath).parent_path();

    return boost::filesystem::create_directories(p);
TagsNo tags attached.

One solution is to uncomment in openvibe.conf:

Path_Root = ..

Path_UserData = ${Path_Root}/openvibe-user

which will apparently use some other local paths.

But this must be fixed somehow! Some users won't know how to hack that.

I wonder if the problem comes from the $ symbol. The path really has that? For OpenViBE, dollar denotes token expansion. Not sure what else could be the problem. I'll investigate when I have a moment.

Could you give it a try?

The final fix appeared in sdk commit 2a572a26a156187bc8d3f60263ce61c69fae1eeb and will be in the next release.
