Installing OCTGN on Win8 with a My Documents mapped to a network drive

Anyone have any advice on installing OCTGN on a PC with My Documents mapped network Drives?


The help articles on octgn.net here http://help.octgn.net/support/solutions/articles/4000006491-octgn-on-network-share-mac-parallels- do not help.  I'm running Win8 so the hotfix doesn't apply.  It is not a mater of permissions to the file share because i have ensured they are correct.


All works fine in the installer but when I load the game, clicking the exe, nothing happens.  The Error Log (located at ~[network share]\USERS\[username]\Documents\Octgn\OCTGN\Logs shows an exception:


 WARN  2015-10-05 13:24:03,733 3.1.175.0 [1] Octgn.Program [(null)] - Check if running on network drive failed
