Sage 300 – Resolution for error while accessing executable from Mapped Drive

By | July 29, 2017

In this blog we are going to discuss one issue which may occur while accessing the executable on workstation machine from the server machine.  The below error message occurs if the path for the executable is set using mapped drive while adding executable on the workstation.

As you can see in the below screenshot the  “Details.exe” is added to Sage 300 desktop by accessing an executable file from a server using mapped drive  “Z:”.

Mapped Drive

As on Desktop version of Sage 300 workstation we cannot access the executable from server using mapped drive, the user is getting below error while running this executable from the workstation.

The solution to this is we can add the executable file using network path instead of using mapped drive.Since the Sage 300 desktop can be able to access the network path executable works fine on workstation as well.
