  • Hi Marc, really great effort and document, that many of us were looking/hoping for. But I have a question.

    On first sight it seems that the Workspace/System folder on the network is used, and not the local Workspace/System folder, is this correct? Because I thought it was best practice to redirect the variable for the systemroot back to your local installation? Could you give me some insight/clarification on this? thanks
