Dear all,

I want just to clarify what is the 'Windows' way to use network filesystems (unc path).

Those files belongs to shared resources. Since windows 3.11 windows has been offering a way to use those resources as they were locally attached to a local computer like nfs filesystem mounting on a unix machine.

The goal is to attach them to a free drive letter as local drives are. You can do that with the file explorer or in a windows command box with the command "net use driveLetter: \\machine\shareName" (i.e : net use x: \\mycomputer\share1) .

After all networks files can be accessed as they were local files through the diver letter and TeXmacs would be able to access them without trouble.

Dear all,
  somebody on facebook made to me a vague remark on the fact that TeXmacs cannot open 
"network drives". I'm not really sure what he meant (and I really do not want 
to ask, the guy was not very friendly) but I guess that it could relate to Windows. Does 
somebody has experience with working in a networked environment in Windows. I think is 
pretty common. Do we have some information as to whether this works or there are indeed
