           Summary: Setting drive as Local disk in winecfg does not work
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.34
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: gore at projectpontiac.com

In winecfg, setting a drive as "Local disk" does not work.

For example:

- I have a drive called X:\ that resides at ~/.wine/drive_x

- ~/ is a network share that gets auto-mounted from the server when I log in

- I use winecfg to set X:\ to a "Local disk" (under the "Show Advanced"
parameters of the "Drives" tab)

- Windows applications still see X:\ as a Network share

This prevents certain applications from installing. For example, Photoshop CS2,
a Platinum-level application, refuses to install to a network share.

This can be repeated easily by trying to install the Photoshop CS2 trial onto a
drive that is hosted on a network share.


So far I've seen this behaviour in Wine version 1.1.28, 1.1.32 and 1.1.34. I
did not try any other versions.
