Running managed .exe from a network share

Monday, October 29th, 2007

I’ve been bitten by this at work many times.

For reasons of “security,” Microsoft makes all managed .exes crash when run from a network share.

Initially, this causes major confusion.  What’s the problem?  It works fine on my machine.  Other .exes on the network work just fine.  Permissions problem?  Network lag?  Many many google searches later do you find the problem.

The end-user experience is awful.  What’s this wierd crash dialog that is showing up?  I’ve never seen this before…

If you get a chance, help me out and voice a comment supporting this change.
