Flow-3d fails to launch
 
Users are not able to launch Flow-3d 10.0 when authenticated on a Windows 7 machine using domain credentials that usalize a roaming profile.

The roaming profile appears as a UNC. It seems as though Flow-3D is trying to access the profile by fails to work with the UNC.

Is there a way, via environmental variables or something similar, to bypass Flow-3D access the users profile and instead utilizing a folder on the local hard drive?

I had the same problem. Solved it using the following steps:

1. Start Registry Editor

2. Open the following key: HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-305035777-899029998-720635935-79877\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ex plorer\User Shell Folders

3. Change the value of ‘Personal’ to a folder on your local hard drive (e.g. C:/Users)
