Yes. Windows doesn't like forward slashes for folders. So, there is a file
//computerName/folderName/filename works, but there is a folder
//computerName/folderName fails. I really don't know why this is, but it is.
So after your answer folder, add the line *replace slash with backslash in
it* and it will work. :-)
