#656 Error opening files from network PCs in Windows

on the beta 17 and 18 I cannot open a file which is in a network server.

when I try to open a file that the route starts with "//PC_Name.." freemind gives an error "java.lang.IllegalArgument.Exception: URI has an authority component"

The only way I solved it is by mapping the network drive with a unit letter. then the routes are "P:/..."

Congratulations, keep the good work.

    This also occurs when you try and open them on a Mac OSX 10.5.3 from a network drive.

    Hi,

    I am using Mac OSX 10.5.4

    From the command line java --version
    java version "1.5.0_13"
    Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_13-b05-237)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_13-119, mixed mode, sharing)

    I see, it is a problem because of the bug in JRE 1.5 . I hope that Chris finds a work around as he knows that mac users can not easily switch to java 1.6.

    Thank you so much for looking into this.

    I love Freemind and use it all the time. FYI. Can you please enable Donate on Sourceforge for this project.

    Hi,

    good news: upgrade to java6 solves the issue as Dimitry found out:
    I have done some investigations why users can not open maps from network directories any more. It seems that the issue can be reproduced for JRE 1.5 because of bug http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=5086147 .

    To reproduce the problem try the following:

    (further I write partly in german because I have only german windows version )

    1. Release any windows directory for network access using explorer menu

    Datei->Eigenschaften->Freigabe->Diesen ordner freigeben

    2. Copy any mind map to this directory.

    3. Run Freemind using command line from freemind directory with arguments like

    C:\Programme\Java\jre1.5.0_11\bin\java -cp lib\freemind.jar;lib\commons-lang-2.0.jar;lib\for
    ms-1.0.5.jar;lib\jibx\jibx-run.jar;lib\jibx\xpp3.jar;lib\bindings.jar freemind.m
    ain.FreeMindStarter \\<Computername>\<ReleasedDirectory>\<MindMap>.mm

    Now you should see the problem which has been fixed only for JRE 1.6

    HTH, Chris
