[visit-users] Datasets on windows shares

Looking at trying to use visit 2.6.3 locally when the datasets are
located on a remote windows share. I can open the dataset if I map the
share to a drive like Z:\, but when I give visit a full windows share
path (i.e. "\\maxwell\Public\RCS\RCS_E_* database",Vs) it doesn't open.
This wouldn't be a problem except when users are on enterprise windows
systems and have Group Policy redirecting e.g. their home directory to a
remote share, windows auto-resolves the path to this cifs file format.
Attached are visit logs of this happening on such a system. If it's not
already in a later version of visit, are there any plans to support this
file path syntax on windows ever? Thanks!
