Path Not Found error when opening VB6 project from a shared folder on Virtual PC 2007 (XP sp3)

Path Not Found error when opening VB6 project from a shared folder on Virtual PC 2007 (XP sp3)

I currently work on a small software team that primarily maintains legacy software. I am trying to set up a VirtualPC that we can use to do this maintenance. Specifically, I would like to be able to debug and run VB6 web apps from a folder on the host pc. My constraints are as follows:

  1. The VirtualPC will not be registered on the domain.
  2. The server that hosts our Subversion repository does not run the subversion service so the only way to interact with the repository is through "file:\\", which requires domain authentication.
  3. It is not possible to debug/run VB6 web apps that are located on mapped network drives, because IIS requires that the VirtualPC be on the same domain as the network drive
  4. I would like to avoid having to copy the folder from the host pc to the VirtualPC and then copying it back in order to have the latest revision from Subversion

So, I am trying to use VirtualPC's shared folder feature to share the host machine's Subversion directory and open the project in VB6 on the VirtualPC. Problem is that Visual Basic throws the error: "Path not found: '\\C:\\Subversion\Path\Project.vbp'" when I try to open it. Folder C:\Subversion on the host machine is mapped to G: on the VirtualPC. If anyone can help me resolve this error or find some other way to accomplish this, I would be deeply grateful.

Oh, both host and virtual OS is Windows XP sp3. Using VB 6.0, IIS v5.1.

I can manipulate files in the shared directory freely from the VirtualPC ie. copy, paste, delete, etc.

IIS App Pool recycles don't appear to observe the specified schedule
VBP and VBG files are text files.

Does restoring a backup of IIS6 restore the GAC?
Look inside them and see whether C:\Subversion or C:\Subversion appear anywhere, perhaps for a subproject in a project group.

Will creating a new app pool disrupt anything in IIS 6?
If they do, change it to use relative paths rather than absolute paths..
