    I’ve noticed that the path to the Media Library has to be fully qualified; it cannot include a mapped drive.

    \\server.com\folder\subfolder\Custom\Library Objects works.

    But if I map, say, drive L: to \\server.com\folder\subfolder, then L:\Custom\Library Objects should work  exactly the same — but it doesn’t. I get an error on loading a course saying Lectora can’t connect to the Media Library folder, and attempts to save objects to it fail with an error saying the folder may be read only.

    Not a huge problem, and now that I’ve found the solution I’ll probably never care again, but fixing it might save other customers some grief.
