How to browse a working location on a local drive with Web client


Question posted 4/23/09 by Franz Andel , tagged Dimensions CM
Details:

DIM CM 10.1.3
We are just migrating from PVCS to Dimensions CM , and I can't manage to use a local drive as working location with the web client like with the Desktop Client.
All I get is a message "Web client only allows you to browse your project working location if it is set to a remote work area where a Dimensions Agent is running"
(The PVCS-VMINET Client is working with local drives)
Thanks in advance.

It is a known limitation specific to web client. You can always use Windows Explorer to browse local drives, and all file picker dialogs in web client also work just fine with local filesystems.

It is not possible, as the message when you try it will tell you: "Web client only allows you to browse your project work area if it is set to a remote managed work area where a Dimensions Agent is running.".
As Vadym says, the native file shell on the browser machine can show you the local file structure instead.
You can install a Dimensions Agent (or a Dimensions Server) on the local machine and access it as NODENAME::path as a workaround if there is some good reason why this is truly necessary (again as the message says).
