Installing ADS on a peer to peer Server
If you are using REMOTE server, you can install ADS on any drive on the one PC you are going to designate as the “Server”. (i.e. C:)
Map a drive as normal (i.e. G:\ = \server_pc\share\folder) on all your PCs. The apps on all PCs can then use g:\table.adt
When the ADS server gets the UNC path which the client converted from the map drive, it (the ADS server) coverts it to a local drive and opens the file via the local drive.
If you setup serverside aliases and make sure your application does not use any file system checks for existing tables/etc, then you don’t even have to map a drive. Just have all apps use the connection path \server\<serversidealias>\table.adt
