Adding a project link in the Citect Explorer that points to a network share path (i.e. UNC) results in a Citect Compiler crash every time you try to compile that project. This only occurs if you have one or more CitectVBA files in your project.

The Compiler in all Citect versions up to and including 7.10 Service Pack 2 does not support network share paths as project links if you have CitectVBA files in your project. A Hotfix has been created for 7.10 Service Pack 1 which resolves this problem. Please contact Citect Support to request Hotfix HF710SP144437 should you require this functionality. The fix for this issue will also be included in 7.10 Service Pack 3 once it is released.

As a workaround, you could map that network share path to a driver in Windows, and then just add a project link that points to this mapped drive:


Share, Network, project, crash, compiler, Map drive, UNC
