Images and appdata configuration setting


Hi all,

We're building a project where we have multiple people working on coding and testing. We've updated the appdata configuration setting to a shared folder on a network drive. Loading images works fine, but when someone uploads an image, it's saved on their local machine and not the shared drive.

Has anyone else experienced this? Everyone has full control on this folder so I don't think it's a rights issue.

Thanks for helping out!

Did you set the VPP directory to shared network folder?

<appData basePath="\\\vpp\myProject" />

Also maybe each developer could have local databse. It could be useful with schema updates - they will available just for the developer.

Yes, that's what we did. We set the basePath to the shared folder. But still it's loading images from that path, but saving it locally.
We're also using a shared database.

Could you try to run this in debug watch window:


This code will show the location of files.
