UNC Paths

I'm attempting to run OpenCover and ReportGenerator on my build server.  CruiseControl.NET is running as a service, and the service does not have access to the mapped drive.

Is there any way to get UNC paths to work?  I'm using 1.6.1, and I've tried all of these:


None of them seem to work.

If I map a drive to \\server\share, it works just fine.

Am I doing something wrong, or are UNC paths not supported.  If it's supposed to work, what do I have to do to make it work.  If it's not supported, what do I have to do to get it supported. :)

To be clear, the error I get is "No report files specified.", even though I can "dir" the exact path and file spec and see the coverage file.  It was generated by OpenCover, and when using a mapped drive and run against the same coverage file, I get the nice coverage report that I'm expecting.

Thanks for your input.

I will have a look at the problem and see what I can do.

Thanks.  FWIW, the -targetdir: parameter appears to work with UNC paths.  If I specify the -reports parameter with a mapped drive, and the -targetdir to a UNC pointing to the same place, I get all of my output files.  Sorry I didn't mention that sooner.

Some further information, if it's helpful.  I'm running this on Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit, and Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64 bit.  They're both failing and succeeding in the same way.

Thank you very much.  Works beautifully!


Oh, and also thank you for providing a complete buildable changeset. :)
